I swiped this from the desk of indie-film producer and weed activist Melissa Balin.
I hope this finds you well! This weekend marks the 15 year Anniversary of Proposition 215 aka The Compassionate Use Act of 1996 for Medical Marijuana being voted in by the State of California! LA City Council members Paul Koretz, Bill Rosendahl & Eric Garcetti have signed a proclamation commending co-author, Dennis Peron for his LGBT and Medical Marijuana civil rights activism resulting in making Los Angeles a better city in which to live; and he will be in attendance to receive this honor on the steps of LA City Hall South Lawn on November 5th & 6th!
If you are interested in speaking or performing at this auspicious occasion to honor Dennis Peron, as well as celebrating 15 years of freedom fighting for the rights we voted for in 1996, please e-mail me (your emcee) directly or send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
The event has been widely publicized (http://youtu.be/Cf1DNWx8HvM) and will take place from High Noon until 7pm on both days! "Highlights" will include a speech by Dennis Peron, Richard Eastman & Kim Quiggle at 2:15pm with a March back & forth to the Federal building, a moment of silence in honor of fallen or incarcerated Freedom Fighters at 4:19 pm & some good old-fashioned civil disobedience at 4:20pm!
Looking forward to seeing everyone!
