Click here to view a 2D map of the portion of the Transylvania University campus near the Young Center. The 'X' indicates the place where we suggest attendees enter the Young Center from North Broadway. The entrance is near the pedestrian crosswalk that is just south of Fourth Street as you travel north on North Broadway (a yellow light is often flashing at the cross walk). Click here to view a map that shows this part of the campus in 3D.
Parking. Suggested parking lots are shaded in blue on the 2D map. These include:
Along the semi-circular drive that surrounds the ‘T’ on the other side of Broadway from the Young Center.
On the left, just north of Kenilworth Court, as you travel farther north on Broadway
In the small lots around the Warren Rosenthal Residential Complex that are on the right was you head west on West Fourth Street.
Exhibitors: The best place to unload your exhibits is behind the Young Center (on the map, it is on the opposite side of the building from the 'X'). While it's not shown on this map, there is a driveway and parking BEHIND the Young Center. You can drive in there, loop to your right around the parking circle, and come alongside the Young Center (now on your right). There is a ramp by a door that is the most direct route to the hall where we are holding the fair.
We will have signs and volunteers staffing that door to help you bring your materials in and leave them near the spot where you will set up. You can park your car after unloading.
The Fair & Cate Fosl's Presentation are free & open to the public
Supper: A delicious vegetarian meal. Vegan & vegetarian choices will be available.
$15 - 50 Adults (12 & up) - Sliding scale according to ability to pay.
$10.00 Students & Low Income.
No charge for children (12 and under)
In a sliding scale you pick the amount. We expect that many people will elect $20, which is our break-even cost. Some persons will be able to pay more to help us subsidize children’s, low income and student tickets. We annually lose $$ on the dinner, but our goal is community-building, not fundraising. No one should stay home because of inability to pay - if you know someone who cannot afford a penny – tell us. We want them to be able to participate. The amount of the ticket over $20 is a tax-deductible contribution to the CKCPJ.
Act now. To reserve a ticket register online by clicking here or contact Richard Mitchell at (859) 327-6277. The deadline for reservations was 5 p.m. Wednesday March 2. As of 3/3 we have 125 registrations. If you act quickly, we will still accept your reservation. When you contact us, please tell us how many persons will be in your party. If you make reservations, you can pay at the door.
Join us for the 25th annual CKCPJ Dinner & Resource Fair. Join us at the Resource Fair to learn more about all the groups and projects going on in central Kentucky. Join us a the supper to see old friends and meet new friends. Join us for a program about peace studies at central KY colleges and universities. Join us as we gather to rededicate ourselves to working for a more sustainable, just, and peaceful world.
Our speaker is Cate Fosl, a historian and the author of Subversive Southerner: Anne Braden and the Struggle for Racial Justice in the Cold War South and co-author of Freedom on the Border: An Oraln History of the Civil Rights Movement in Kentucky. Dr. Fosl is an Associate Professor at the University of Louisville, where she also directs the Anne Braden Institute for Social Justice Research. Dr. Fosl will be speaking on the topic: “Beyond the Oppression Olympics." Fosl summarizes her theme as follows: “In the 1980s, U.S. justice struggles were held back by internal divisions and even competition over which ‘ism’ (racism, sexism, militarism, etc.) should take priority. I’ll outline that history and use a few recent local examples to discuss its transformation into more effective coalition-building and ways of thinking about different systems of oppression more synergistically or intersectionally.” Cate's presentation will be followed by a lively Q & A session led by Transylvania students.

At 5 p.m. come for our Networking & Resource Fair. A wide variety central Kentucky organizations be present with their displays, brochures, etc. Join us as we network with members of our community who are working for peace, a restored planet, and social justice.
