Come help us make a difference at the OC fair! This year, the Orange County Peace Coalition has a table at the OC fair, where we are advocating peace and non-violence, and the closure of Guantanamo Bay!

Our table is up on Saturdays (when we expect the busiest day of the fair is), and we need staffers. So join us, sit at our table, relax, and talk to fair attendees enjoying the weekend.

If you’d like to know more, email Alex HR at CarmakerMe@Gmail. Hope to see you at the fair!
