University of Colorado

Usually quite the forum for Israel-bashing and other antisemitic displays
From The Middle East Education Project:
The first general meeting of the University of Colorado Conference on World Affairs (CWA) will be held on Wednesday, September 3, in UMC Room 415, from 4:30 pm to 5:30 pm. This marks the beginning of the planning process for the 2004 conference.

At that time, subcommittees will be formed that represent distinct subject matter areas. These subcommittees will, over the months leading up to the conference, work to select and invite panelists qualified to discuss these area of interest; the international affairs subcommittee is one such example.

Participating in the conference through subcommittee membership is an excellent way to support change and influence the direction of this year's conference. The ability to participate in the selection of speakers and moderators and to clearly define their roles should help prevent the inflammatory statements and emotionally charged bias on the subject of the Middle East that has emerged in the past.

A large turnout and high levels of participation from the Boulder Jewish community will help ensure that the treatment of the Middle East at the CWA will be fair and balanced. High attendance and the opportunity to participate in many panels will help us to achieve our goals as well as assist the conference by providing useful input from an important constituency.

Thank you.
Sorry to be late posting this. Please don't let missing the first meeting discourage you from attending the next. They're looking for "A LARGE TURNOUT AND HIGH LEVELS OF PARTICIPATION FROM THE BOULDER JEWISH COMMUNITY . . . " Come out, come out, wherever you are!
