White Rose Political Calendar

Welcome to this week’s edition of the White Rose Political Calendar. The calendar takes its name from the White Rose, a resistance group in Nazi Germany that worked to educate and organize opposition to the horrifying agenda of the Third Reich. In the spirit of the White Rose, WPKN offers its weekly Political Calendar in order to give voice to the struggles for political, social, economic and environmental justice. Here are this week’s listings:


On Wed March 23, from 5:30pm – 7:00pm, there'll be a Public Hearing on the Cost of the Military Budget to New Haven at the Wilbur Cross High School library, 181 Mitchell Drive, New Haven, sponsored by the New Haven Peace Commission. It's free and the public is invited. The hearing will show the impact of the federal budget on the city. Chris Hellman of the National Priorities Project will speak about how the money spent on wars and weapons could better be utilized.  Resident testimony of how budget cuts have affected their organizations and them personally will be heard. Light refreshments will be provided.  Any questions, call (203)387-0370.

On Wed March 23, from 7:00pm – 8:30pm, the Branford Land Trust presents a lecture, SNAKES OF NEW ENGLAND, at Blackstone Library, Main St. at Cedar St., Branford. Linda Krulikowski, author of Snakes of New England, will give a slide presentation and share her decades of knowledge and passion for snakes. This is a wonderful program for people of all ages. Linda will have books for purchase and autographing. Free and open to the public. For further information go to www.branfordlandtrust.org

The Week of March 21-27 is Israel Apartheid Week. There will be films, discussions and presentations in New Haven, Middletown and Hartford.

Dates include Mar. 23, 4 p.m. at the UCONN book store in Storrs;  Mar. 24, 1 p.m. at the Oliver Wolcott Library, 160 South St., Litchfield, and Mar. 24, 6 p.m. at Yale University, William L.

It commemorates the 100th anniversary of the fire at the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory in NYC that killed 146 girls and young women between the ages of 13 and 23 years old.  A ceremony on March 25 at 4:30 p.m. includes a HartBeat Theater Ensemble performance and awards for high school essay contest winners to raise awareness of workplace health issues.

On Friday, March 25, there'll be a free orientation to the Transition Training that will take place over the weekend. It will preview the Triple Challenge of Peak Oil, climate instability, and economic deterioration in ways that move people to positive action, and help people discover imaginative and rewarding ways to work with obstacles that have prevented our communities from recognizing and responding to these challenges. It's at the Friends Meeting House, 225 E. Grand Avenue, New Haven. It's free and open to the public. For more information, contact Terry at terry@dharmahaven.org.

On Monday, March 28, from 6:10 - 8:00 PM, two experts will give their perspectives on "Revolution and Reform in Egypt: Prospects for Meaningful Change," followed by a panel discussion. It's at Yale Law School, 127 Wall St., Room 127. Speakers are Emad El-Din Shahin, Univ. of Notre Dame, and Tarek Masoud, from the Kennedy School at Harvard. Sponsored by the Orville H. Schell, Jr. Center for International Human Rights. It's free and open to the public. For more information, contact Barbara Mianzo at 203-432-7480 or email barbara.mianzo@yale.edu.
