We would love to share your events on this page, as well as on our social media! Please send events to us, with appropriate links, graphics, photos, etc. two weeks or more in advance of the event, if possible. Send to firstname.lastname@example.org for the website only, to email@example.com for Facebook and Twitter, and to both if you want it on all.
Please include complete details: date, time, location (city AND state- there are 34 Springfields in the U.S.!), any compliance issues, and costs involved, as well as a way to contact an actual person if we have questions.
For events relevant to NIMA or other political/social justice issues, see our dedicated website speac.org. Here you will find two event calendars - one for DUH, one for POP - showing national and local events that have Event pages on Facebook. If you want your event on one of those calendars, create a Facebook Event page and invite Donna to like it. If she finds it appropriate, it will appear on the calendar.
You can also use the Events button that comes up on your own FB home page to find events in your area which have been posted by your friends and groups. You can usually check what is happening in your area by type of event, and date using the calendar.
When we know of large national events, either on FB or not, we will be certain to post them here, and will periodically feature notices on our social media that these are upcoming.
We know there will be many events that occur in a vacuum. Media coverage is unlikely and local calendars of events rarely get noticed. So we must rely on you to let us know of any events we've failed to list. If people will have to make travel and lodging, child care, or time off from work arrangements in order to attend, please give us (and them) enough lead time (usually a month) to make that possible. Spontaneity is great, but not so much when you need a big crowd!
