Urbana-Champaign Organizes for Post-Election Initiatives.
04 Nov 2004 04:27 GMT
Scores of local community members took part in a hastily assembled Community Meeting and Social to discuss new projects, ideas, and strategies following the 2004 elections. Earlier in the evening community members rallied in the cold and rain at the corner of Race and Main Streets in downtown Urbana to demonstrate against the flawed American election system. Over a dozen projects were unveiled and discussed as people channeled their anger, their concern, and their disappointment -- vowing not to give up hope, lessen in their community engagement, or cease resisting discrimination and the diminution of our civil rights.
