Pat LaMarche, Green vice presidential nominee
in 2004, will speak on Friday, July 22 about her Left Out Tour
during the 2004 race. From September 21 to October 4, Ms. LaMarche
undertook an unprecedented two-week journey, spending nights in
homeless and domestic violence shelters across the U.S. to draw
attention to those left out of the election year debate -- the
homeless, victims of domestic abuse, people without health
insurance, and the working poor -- and to collect donations of
essential items for homeless shelters. The Cobb/LaMarche campaign
launched and led vote recounts in Ohio and New Mexico after
widespread complaints of vote obstruction and manipulation on
Election Day 2004 <http://www.votecobb.org>.
John Eder, a Green Party member elected to the
Maine House of Representatives in 2002 and reelected in 2004, will
