CAN-RW Digest 170

Topics covered in this issue include:

has been talking with dozens of organizations for the last 2 months about
a Spring Day of Action. Although these organizations -- including SEAC,

If you are interested in getting involved in the initial stages of action
planning, please subscribe to the new list:
