Inviting a guest speaker to talk and showing images and/or the movie is a great way to get people in your area interested.
Possible guest speakers include
Ryan Libre – Photographer / Film maker who has spent 6 years documenting the Kachin.
He would love to share his experinces and award-winning images and video. Location : Thailand / Japan
He would love to share his first-hand experiences of the Kachin. Location : Vermont ( travels often )
Tim Patterson – writer who has written many articles about the Kachin over the past 4 years. He has stayed nearly one month in the Kachin Independence Organization control areas and keeps regular contact with many people inside.
He would love to explain about the Kachin’s current situation and history. Location : Vermont
I hope to have many people listed in different parts of the US and the world.
If you are someone with firsthand experience in Kachin and would like to volunteer to be a possible guest speaker please contact us. Of course if someone requests you don’t have to go, depends on your time.
