Town Hall Meetings on
An important goal of this anniversary
campaign is to invigorate the human rights movement by
forging lasting new partnerships and long-term
collaborations. Town Hall Meetings are not meant
to end the effort. They are intended to be launching
points for initiatives strategically useful to the
achievement of campaign goals.
The great work that this anniversary can and should
inspire will be the activity of years into the next
century. Town Hall Meetings will provide a place
to raise community conversation to a level where
constituencies can coalesce, issues can pierce official
negligence and structures can be proposed with lasting
promise of new leadership and cooperation.
The training in organizing and media outreach will
also leave behind a legacy of enhanced skills and
contacts for participating organizations and their
communications teams. For thousands of Town Hall
Meeting participants new knowledge and ideas, access
to information and opportunities to exert leadership will
be benefits of what promise to be stimulating,
challenging and inspiring events.
