Janet Bosco and I are starting a new book read and action group at the Hudson Valley LGBTQ Center in Kingston on the corner of Wall and John St.  The first meeting is this Sunday the 13th from 3-5.  O'dell and Jeff have agreed to help us get started.  Please get the word out to anyone who might be interested, new people who are just reading the book and people that have been involved and one to help get a new read and action group started. We have already met with representatives of both ENJAN and other activist groups who want to coordinate activities with us.  The theme for the Center this year is Justice for All, and they mean all. Members of the Center and Everyone else are  invited to join us.
