It's Gandhi's birthday today, and in lieu of cake, we served up a satisfying helping of world music focusing on nonviolence and peace.
One way to support peace and justice is to contribute to local institutions such as social service charities, educational organizations, and community radio. Yes, community radio -- which helps keep you in touch with your neighbors, with under-reported news from around the world, and with non-corporate viewpoints and diverse music.
KAOS's fall membership drive is in October, but you can beat the membership rush by becoming a KAOS member or renewing your membership online today. Same spanky-fresh prizes, no waiting on the phone. You can even help us shorten the length of the drive Just visit: http://kaos.evergreen.edu/membership/join.html -- Thanks!
