For many of us in the LA progressive and peace communities, Change Links was the first point of contact we had with the community. It was the open door.
With the passing of John Johnson, we lost one of the "backbones" of the LA progressive community. The struggle, however, continues, especially today.
A group of people have joined together to revive Change Links, and the July issue will be a memorial to John Johnson. They will try to publish monthly.
Please send your July and August events to changelinks2.gmail.com.
Two emails we received about the meeting on the 10th are below.
