US Social Forum
The US Social Forum, was a gathering of over 15,000 "peace and justice-mongers" in Detroit, June 2010. . The Forum kicked off with a high energy, spirited march into downtown Detroit on Tuesday. Judith LeBlanc and Dave Kunes "had the pleasure of marching with our Peace Action of Michigan homies, and also Will Hopkins from New Hampshire Peace Action".
On Wednesday "we had a terrific mini-organizers meeting", led by Paul Kawika Martin, Jonathan Williams and Judith LeBlanc, with leaders from affiliates and chapters from across the country. That night we hosted a wonderful reception at the Swords into Plowshares gallery and peace center near downtown Detroit. Thanks "to Helen Weber, national Peace Action co-chair and PA MI stalwart, for her work, and also to the other wonderful Michigan volunteers who made the event a success".
