Activist Alert 2016-12-22

At 7 pm Wednesday, Dec. 28, there will be a public meeting regarding The Future of Tsunami Books. The lease for Tsunami Books is up June 30, 2017, Scott Landfield of Tsunami says. Will it continue at its present location, will it be moved, or will it dissolve? The facts will be presented, followed by a facilitated question and answer, and discussion period. An as-yet unscheduled second meeting by invite will be held to deal with specific financial issues. Email tsunami1@opusnet.com with questions or comments.

• In case you missed it on EW’s Facebook page, check out the recording by Eagle Park Slim on the theme of “Give” on our blog and go online and peruse our “Give Guide” as you ponder ways to fight Donald Trump’s agenda. You will also find the last two Christmas songs recorded by Slim, “Every Day” and “Young Mary,” both backed by Paul Biondi on saxophone. You can volunteer your time, material items or make tax-deductible donations to a plethora of amazing organizations. Did we miss any? Tell us about it in a letter to the editor sent to letters@eugeneweekly.com.

 • Egan Warming Centers have activated eight nights so far this month, and more cold weather is possible for the holidays so more volunteers are needed to staff this vital shelter option for the unhoused. Egan has scheduled one more new volunteer orientation this month at 6:30 pm Thursday, Dec. 22, at the First Christian Church 1166 Oak Street, in the chapel. Note that the parking lot across the alley behind the church is a pay-to-park lot seven days a week, 24 hours a day.
