We were originally going to take the day off on Tuesday to relax and prepare for the rest of the busy week but plans quickly changed when Tori Wester, KSU student and up and coming activist, messaged the Georgie Peace & Justice Coalition facebook page and said,"If there are any efforts that could be aided by the Kennesaw State University Peace and Justice Coalition, please email me via facebook or through firstname.lastname@example.org. We would be more than happy to join forces and help promote justice throughout Georgia!"
Of course we couldn't ignore the invitation! So with less then a week before the tour started Tori reached out to her professor, Tom Pynn, and booked a room and outreached the tour stop, not an easy task.
Though the crowd was much smaller then Dalton they made up for it with their vocal cords. KSU students had a lot to say, and they were excited to explore opportunities to strengthen their work, increase the volume on their collective voices, cross pollenate with other movements, and develop stronger analysis around the issues their working on.
We were super excited to hear about the peace conference they're working on for next March, which they invited us to be a part of:)
It must be said the AAC is amazing, I'm so excited to be on tour with this crew.
Oh, and we got some exciting news for those that are outside of Georgia or can't make any of the tour stops for whatever reason. The event Friday night at Georgia State(7pm) will be streamed live on the interwebs for all to see!
...and If you're a student at KSU you need to get with Tori....
