FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
WHAT IS THIS?
For six years, this is the place where free minded people in Lane County exchange views, ideas and mutual support with other free minded people!
All topics are welcome, though we have a special focus on challenging what is called “normality,” and promoting a nonviolent revolution in how our society supports mental and emotional well being.
This will be the 71st successful free monthly First Wednesday Round Table sponsored by MindFreedom Lane County, part of an independent nonprofit coalition based in Eugene, Oregon, USA.
MindFreedom International, based here in Eugene, unites 100 sponsor and affiliate groups around the world with the mission of a nonviolent revolution in mental health care.
This event is indeed at a round table in the public common room directly outside the MindFreedom office on the second floor of the historic Growers Market building.
IS THE MEETING WHEELCHAIR ACCESSIBLE?
Yes. If you need to use the “wheel-evator” to get to the second floor, contact the office before hand at 345-9106 to make sure dock door is opened for you.
WHERE DO I PARK?
* Five FREE spots for Growers office building guests are marked “reserved” to the north of building against the fence on the west edge of the Amtrak parking lot by the chain link fence.
* We’ve never heard of a parking meter ticket after 5 pm. All meters are officially free at 6 pm.
* If these spots are full, there are free parking spaces on any side street starting two short blocks to the west at Charnelton north of Fifth St.
HOW CAN I HELP?
We’ll have free snacks and beverages, but you are welcome to bring extra if you wish.
