Over the past few weeks, I’ve been working with the help of some co-conspirators to put on an alternative event to the Sunday evening (5/31) Boortz dinner. It will provide an introduction and panel discussion on market solutions to current social ills. We will be putting up flyers and getting the event publicized as best we can.
It will be a free, public event. No food will be served, so you’re on your own to get a bite to eat beforehand.
This will accomplish two objectives; an event of interest to libertarians who won’t do Boortz, and a public outreach activity. This will be the first time in
(at least) recent history that a convention activity has attempted to make any impact on the host city.
Since this is the radical caucus, the speakers will, of course, be radicals. Confirmed panelists so far include four of our very best author/speakers: Less Antman, Gary Chartier, Joshua Katz, and Tom Knapp. One other is tentative.
More details about this event will be published just as soon as the venue is confirmed.
The other planned convention activity is a Radical Caucus lunch gathering on 5/30, during the official convention’s Davis and Barr talks. Whether it’s a social event or an organizational meeting is up to you. It’s at the nearby Hunan Manor at 12:30.
I hope that these events give you an additional reason to look forward to the convention, and that the information is of some help in planning your schedule.
