VFP Video Contest Comes to New Haven Tuesday, July 29

Veterans for Peace organization is having a nationwide Music Video Contest for songs connecting “Climate Crisis & the War Machine.

This ties in perfectly with the

  •  New Haven Peace Commission Referendum that you helped put on the ballot – thanks to you, 83% of NH voters moved YES to transfer money from military to human needs
  • Earth Day Event on April 23 where Johanyx, Manny and other youth climate and justice activists spoke so eloquently about these issues
  • Where Do We Want Our Green to Go?

Peace Commission Member and musician Fred Brown and I said, Let’s do it!

We are excited about collaborating – with you – to create a music video to enter the contest. We are ready and eager to make it happen.

Thanks to Delores Williams, our soon-to-be new Peace Commission Member, we have the invitation to meet in the wonderful space at People Get Ready Bookstore.

– We warmly invite you to join us this coming Tuesday at 5 pm at People Get Ready Bookstore, 122 Whalley, right next to Papa John Pizza

We’ll have fun making a music video of the Where Do We Want Our Green to Go? song to submit to the contest.

Please come and lend your energy and voice to the Call-and-Response. (I’m attaching a copy of the song + a few relevant facts.)

Feel free to invite others. Tell them not to worry if they’re not good singers – what we need is live energy!

Fred will bring microphone, amp, camera, keyboard; I’ll bring my bass fiddle. You – bring yourselves and friends, young and old.

Hope to see you in person this Tuesday at 5 pm at People Get Ready Bookstore, 122 Whalley Ave.

We’ll do a couple of fun run-throughs to get us warmed up, then hope to record it and have it wrapped by 6 or 6:30.

Maybe some pizza on the People Get Ready Bookstores benches afterwards!
