I (Marty) will be in Washington D.C. this coming weekend, attending to the shared work I am privileged to accomplish with Genocide Intervention Network. I wish I felt I could do *more* than what I do - and I hope for a greater intervention by more persons in our world - but I am thankful too - *very* *very* thankful that I have had opportunity to partner with so many great people in and around OKC and with great Carl Wilkens Fellows with GI NET!
At the end of this month, J. Derek Sparks who has worked in offices with Senator Coburn and Mary Fallin (among others) will be a spokesperson sharing about issues of peace and diplomacy on the campus of Southern Nazarene University.
We have chosen to postpone an evening even with Derek for this Fall - anticipating other options toward Spring 2011 - but we are excited for the numerous students he will have opportunity to engage in several classroom settings on Wednesday and Thursday, September 29th and 30th. Interested in hearing what he has to share, contact me directly about when and where he will be speaking in several campus buildings each morning.
My scheduled meetings in the offices in D.C. are with Senator Coburn, Senator Inhofe and Congresswoman Mary Fallin in effort to raise awareness about - and support of issues connected to Genocide and the situation in Sudan. Are you an Oklahoman who wants to raise your voice to this advocacy work? Contact me at martymichelson (at) gmail (dot) com
