POSTPONED due to Inclement Weather Forecast!

Activism for All Ages

A Networking Event

On January 14, in cooperation with local activist attorneys, UDC-DCSL will host a networking extravaganza.  What happens after that will be the result of the choices of those who attend!  We will hold similar events from time to time to expand the program and to learn from its successes and failures but no training or administrative functions are planned other than what is described below. 

The event will have 2 keynote speakers.  Jim Turner will give a talk on insights he has gleaned from his years as an activist attorney.  Professor Edgar Cahn, co-founder of the Antioch School of Law (now UDC-DCSL!) and www.TimeBanks.org will also speak about bringing ideas to fruition. Their talks will be about 15 minutes each. 

Then we may split into subgroups, depending on the number of participants, and those who have expressed an interest in speaking so will do so for several minutes each for a total of an hour..  We will then have an hour to exchange contact information.  If it is not possible to meet everyone you would like to meet, but we will facilitate additional networking.  People will have an opportunity to summarize their interests and needs and this will be made available.

To speak at this event, please provide a summary of what you would like to say (which will be used in the networking lists we will prepare), as well as contact information and anything relevant to your desires. Please send this information to Judy Kosovich at judy.kosovich@gmail.com. 

About Judy and Jim

Jim Turner began his activist career as Ralph Nader's first lawyer, where he wrote "The Chemical Feast."  He later had a pivotal role in organic foods, mercury-free dental fillings, vaccines, trans partisan politics, and many other issues.  He and Betsy Lehrfeld have a law practice that focuses primarily on health issues.  One of his more recent endeavors, Citizens for Health (citizens.org), educates consumers about chemicals in the food supply.  He and Betsy, along with Judy Kosovich and other volunteers, help practitioners of various wellness practices bring information to their elected Representatives in Congress through Voice for HOPE (healers of planet earth).  He is a proponent of trans-partisan politics and brings great wisdom to any discussion. 

Judy Kosovich began her career working for one of the companies that promotes toxic consumer products.  That experience caused her to switch from chemical engineering to law.  She spent more than 20 years in federal service, trying to bring about positive change through public service.  She took advantage of an early retirement and is now involved in various volunteer and professional activities, many of which involve Jim Turner.  Objecting to smart meters, she has gone off the grid in Capitol Hill.
