Calling all activists!
Students Eliminating Environmental Destruction (SEED) cordially invites you to join us for a weekend of workshops, protests, music, and fun at Kent State University in Ohio. We are hosting a regional conference of the Student Environmental Action Coalition (SEAC) from Friday, April 18-Sunday April 20 (the weekend before Earth Day).

This weekend is a great opportunity for you or your group to sharpen your activist skills and network with dynamic people from various parts of the Great Lakes and Ohio River Valley regions. Here are some logistical details for the event:

REGISTRATION: We encourage everyone to register in advance, as it makes things run more smoothly. However, there will also be opportunities to register at the door. Registration forms are available online at our website (see bottom of email). Registration fees are designed to cover meals and other expenses. We are asking for $15.00 on a sliding scale. Those who can afford to pay more than $15.00 are encouraged to do so, but no-one will be turned away from the conference for lack of money.

HOUSING: Floor space and parking is available in several different locations. We are still working out the final details on this. Please call us for housing information or send us an advance registration form and we?ll call you.
