Area folks gearing up for the US Social Forum

April 17, 2010

A small group of people met at The Bloom Collective today to talk about the upcoming US Social Forum, which takes place June 2 – 26 in Detroit. Representatives from The Bloom, GRIID and Our Kitchen Table (OKT) who plan on attending the USSF with their organizations and others who plan on attending on an individual basis all shared excitement about the potential impact the USSF could have Grand Rapids and the globe.

Some present hope people coming back to Grand Rapids after the USSF would be able to do education about the negative impacts of globalization measures being brought forth by the World Bank, World Trade Organization and the International Monetary Fund. Others want to learn how to better build a radical community here in Grand Rapids.

The discussion group will meet again Friday April 23 at 1 p.m. at The Bloom Collectives’ former space, 1134 Wealthy St. SE. Please join us… it’s about you.
