  1. “Share your story”–update needed (deadline for July-August issue?)
    [Editor’s note: next deadline is Sunday, July 8.]

  2. Downtown Detroit, May 19–Swords into Plowshares Peace Center & Gallery sponsored a community conversation inspired by its exhibition “Guns: Artists Respond.” The Women’s Caucus for Art (WCA) and Mothers Demand Action (MDA) brought artists together with community representatives. The conversation was complex: the mostly older women present said things like “I grew up with guns, I like guns, and we have to do something about gun violence.” One of the artists reminded people that although the public actions and demonstrations during Freedom Summer, 1964 were non-violent, the young northern white activists and their host Black families wouldn’t have survived had those families not been known to own and use guns should it be necessary.
    The aim of “Guns: Artists Respond” and the community gathering “is to give artists a chance to express their views on gun violence and to offer an environment open to growth and understanding, especially because gun violence is experienced very differently in different Detroit communities.”
    Steve, Detroit
