Evansville Tea Party

The Evansville, Indiana Tea Party is schedule for April 15th at 5:00 PM to correspond with national Tax day.  The even will be held downtown at the Civic Center Complex, out on the front steps.  This will be a peaceful demonstration, in response to local, state, and federal government actions.

For those who fell asleep during history class, the original Boston Tea Party was a protest to Taxation Without Representation.  Many feel that we are again in a similar political environment where the elected leaders are not accurately representing the wishes of their people.

I'll be there, since it's an actual protest after work hours, for the working people who feel unfairly treated.  Let's represent, be vocal and make sure the biast Evnasville Courier doesn't scew what its' really all about.  See you there.

    World Vision Experience: AIDS – Step into Africa

    WHAT: World Vision Experience: AIDS – Step Into Africa is a unique, multimedia, interactive exhibit that allows visitors to step into the lives of actual children affected by HIV and AIDS in the hardest-hit region of the world: Sub-Saharan Africa, where about 25 million people are infected with HIV (2/3 of the world’s total). Visitors walk through a replica of an African village and experience the effects of the pandemic in a real way as they listen to a personal audio track relating the story of one of four real children.

    The “World Vision Experience: AIDS” exhibit comes to Evansville, IN, May 31 – June 7. The exhibit visited 75 cities nationwide in 2007/2008, and is scheduled to visit 40 more in 2009. To date, hundreds of thousands of people have visited the exhibit, with more than 150,000 more expected to visit in 2009.

    WHO: The exhibit, which is free and open to the public, features a 3,600 square foot replica of an African village. Visitors tour the village, listening on headsets to a personal audio track telling the true stories of four children – Kombo, Babirye, Emmanuel, and Mathabo – whose lives have been affected by AIDS, offering visitors the opportunity to see, hear and experience the devastating effects of AIDS in a very personal way.

    WHEN: Free and open to the public Sunday, May 31 – Sunday, June 7. Hours of operation are as follows: Sun, May 31 and June 7 9am – 7pm; Mon – Sat 10am – 8pm.

    WHERE: Christian Fellowship Church
    4100 Millersburg Road
    Evansville, IN 47225

    Background:
    A prototype exhibit was launched in fall 2005, and hundreds of thousands of visitors have gone through the exhibit in cities all across the United States. The prototype Experience was featured at the 2006 Global AIDS Conference in Toronto and displayed in New York’s Grand Central terminal in the summer of 2006. The overwhelming response to the prototype exhibit led World Vision to commission the new exhibits and launch the upcoming national tour.

    World Vision is a Christian relief and development organization dedicated to helping children and their communities worldwide reach their full potential by tackling the causes of poverty. World Vision serves the world’s poor regardless of a person’s religion, race, ethnicity, or gender. For more information, visit http://www.worldvision.org.
