Noura Khouri, our Las Vegas Field Organizer, has only been on the ground for a week and we are already seeing great results in our presidential birddogging campaign. Noura and our Deputy Political Director Axel Woolfolk attended a town hall meeting with Sen. Barack Obama (this picture from the Las Vegas Sun shows Noura in her close encounter with the presidential candidate). Despite the huge crowd of more than 600 people, both Peace Action West staff were able to shake hands with Sen. Obama and ask him about his foreign policy. Noura followed this with the grand opening of Bill Richardson’s campaign office, asking him about complete withdrawal from Iraq and US nuclear weapons policy.
Visit Voters for Peace and Security to read Noura’s accounts of the action on the ground leading up to the Nevada Caucus. Reports from our Reno organizer Deirdre DesJardins will be coming soon.
