RE: Anti-War Activist Cindy Sheehan and Others to Speak at Johns Hopkins
WHEN: 8 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 20
WHERE: Shriver Hall Auditorium
The Johns Hopkins University
3400 N. Charles St.
Baltimore, MD 21218

Cindy Sheehan and other members of the "Bring Them Home Now!" Bus Tour will be speaking at Shriver Auditorium on the Homewood campus of Johns Hopkins University on Tuesday, Sept. 20, at 8 p.m. Sheehan, whose son Casey died while serving with the Army in Iraq, became a national symbol of opposition to the war during her vigil outside of President Bush's Texas ranch in August. Sheehan's protest was joined by thousands of people, including others who have lost family members in Iraq and veterans of the war. The bus tour will end in Washington, D.C., next weekend. The riders plan to join a rally on Saturday, Sept. 24, to demand that U.S. troops be brought home from Iraq.

The forum at Shriver Hall will include members of Gold Star Families for Peace, an organization formed by relatives of servicemen and women killed in Iraq; members of Military Families Speak Out, a group of people who have family members serving in the military; Veterans for Peace, an organization composed of veterans from all of America's recent wars; and Iraq Veterans Against the War. Joining them will be Rose Gentle, a founder of Military Families Against the War in the United Kingdom, whose son also died in Iraq. The event is being co- sponsored on the Johns Hopkins campus by JHU Justice and the Hopkins Anti-War Coalition.
