Dionne Procell (dprocell@comcast.net) and Alan Brown (alan@agonsys.com) will lead a discussion of political issues important to young locals at Shreve Memorial Library on Sat, July 26, at 6:00 pm, says Procell.

Attendees are encouraged to draft their own version of the ideal Democratic national platform and submit it to the campaign for review.

This is yet another opportunity for Obama supporters in Shreveport to meet each other, says Versha Sharma, to network and discuss local issues such as the Haynesville Shale drilling and the importance of environmental protection.

Also planning meetings: Kneece Camp (kneece15@hotmail.com) may host a gathering Sunday. Sharon Green (sf.green@hotmail.com) is planning another platform meeting in conjunction with the Student Government at Southern University.
