Vietnam Peace Commemoration Committee event Oct. 21

Dear H-PAD friends,

The Vietnam Peace Commemoration (VPCC) is holding a conference in Washington, DC, on October 20-21 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the famous 1967 March on the Pentagon.  This event is being co-sponsored by the Historians for Peace and Democracy and a number of other organizations.  See this H-PAD blog for more information.  Here are three ways you can help this project:

Publicize.  This conference is open to all.  Please pass the word and make announcements in your classrooms, if appropriate.  The capacity of the church where the event is being held in 410, so there is room for interested young people. 

Volunteer.  For those who would like to lend a hand, conference coordinator Terry Provance says they could use volunteers to staff the sign-in desk and literature tables, make signs and banners for the walk to the Vietnam Wall, monitor the walk, set up sound systems, make phone calls, help distribute lunches, and clean up the church.  The VPCC is planning to have a temporary office in DC for the last week before the event where people can come and get work done, especially on Thursday and Friday of that week.  Contact Terry Provance at

Donate.  If you have a few extra dollars to spare, the VPCC could use your support.  Here’s the link:
