Atlanta Group Sets Up Ishmael Booth at Georgia Tech Earth Day Celebration
The ATLeavers group designed, developed and staged an information table for the Georgia Institute of Technology's 2002 Earth Day celebration. Tom Tomaka, who supplied the photos and information about the group, said, " We generated much interest from passers-by, many of whom had read the book but not found kindred spirits to share with. We are proud of our work and hope to attend more events of this sort."
Here's what Tom had to say about the group purpose and activities of the group. "The ATLeavers formed two years ago to mutually support Metro Atlanta residents who are inspired by the works of Daniel Quinn and other visionaries. We have recognized our responsibility to restore society to a healthy state of affairs, benefiting all humanity and the community of life. We work to promote a sustainable future through individual and mass actions, and we encourage all members to implement their new vision in whatever steps they choose.
"Beyond the recent Earth Day information table, ATLeaver members have recently spoken at a local coffee house's open mike event and have asked the author Michael Moore to read Ishmael. We also promote our vision by publicly distributing a variety of self-produced pamphlets, bookmarks, stickers and "Ishmael Bucks".
"The ATLeavers maintain their community both through a dedicated Yahoo Group and a bi-monthly meeting. We have over fifty members registered in our Yahoo Group representing diverse backgrounds. I am most impressed by the number of high school and college students who participate but also see business people, teachers and community activists at our gatherings."
