So you will know what to expect:
ShieldWall Network meetings are family friendly environments. No alcoholic beverages or personal or inter-organizational drama, please.
The next ShieldWall Network meeting will be on Saturday, September 23rd, in central Arkansas, beginning at 12 noon and lasting approximately two hours. At that meeting you will also be informed about three upcoming events which we urge you to attend, two in-state in different regions of Arkansas, and one out of state. Due to this meeting being expected to be our largest so far, we have secured a private location. For that reason, those whom we have not met with previously will be provided with a rendezvous point for vetting prior to admission to the secure site. Security will be on hand both at the rendezvous point and at the meeting location. E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for the exact time and location of the rendezvous.
The meeting itself is free. If you would like to eat with us, dinner will be provided at $10 per plate. Live musical entertainment will be supplied to accompany the meal while you socialize and eat.
During the Introduction period, you may use your own name or a nom de guerre, if you prefer, and can share as much or as little about yourself as you would like. For networking purposes, however, we would appreciate being given a way to contact you for future events and meetings.
There will be free raffles and door prizes, as well as the auction of a unique, one of a kind handmade swastika blanket as a fundraiser for the ShieldWall Network.
You will be given a recap of recent ShieldWall Network media contacts, rallies, protests, and demonstrations, as well as our in-real-life and social media outreach and online recruitment efforts. Acknowledgements of recent contributions and donations will be given, along with a full report of how those donations have been spent, and suggestions for our next projects as well as a report on ongoing projects.
Due to its growth as one of the leading faith-based worldviews within the right wing, an adherent of Christian Identity will give an introductory testimonial presentation about that religious belief system. While The ShieldWall Network does not require that its affiliates pay homage to any particular faith, we do ask that everyone be civil and respectful of one another’s beliefs.
Our Acting State Coordinator for a neighboring state’s ShieldWall Network will speak about his recent recruitment and organizing efforts there, as a model for activism by others.
Two ShieldWall Network affiliates who were present at the Battle of Charlottesville will deliver a joint presentation about the pros and cons of the event, highlighting what was done right, and what can be improved upon for future similar events. Following their presentation, we will announce and discuss the launching of The ShieldWall Network’s new defense arm, ‘The Phalanx’.
At the end of the meeting, we will discuss the three upcoming events schedules, coordinate transportation for them, and vote on the location of the next ShieldWall Network meeting.
