chart on military spendingA collaborative broadcast on Thursday, July 18, will create a national, town hall forum in which citizens will have the opportunity to listen to experts on the subject of the military and how to transform the job creation landscape. The town hall will be broadcast on three community radio stations, KPFT Houston TX, KBOO Portland OR, KGNU Boulder CO, and allow for listeners to call in or listen live online.

Speakers at the town hall broadcast include: Miriam Pemberton, Institute for Policy Studies; Dr. Robert Pollin, University of Massachusetts; and Col. Lawrence Wilkerson (ret), former chief of staff to United States Secretary of State Colin Powell.

This broadcast is part of a planned series of similar events by Article V Convention for Our Children’s Future (AVC4OCF) that they are calling their National Campaign for Jobs in America. The nonprofit’s primary goal for their campaign for jobs is the enactment in Congress of jobs and energy legislation that is based on a citizen-created blueprint developed by citizens in these town-hall meetings.

The town hall will be simultaneously broadcast from the studios of KBOO in Portland, Oregon, KGNU in Boulder, Colorado, and KPFT in Houston, Texas, and will also be streamed (audio) from the websites of these stations. Citizens anywhere in the United States or the world will be able to participate in the town hall by calling one of these stations using their 800 number.

LISTEN to broadcast online live.
