    Any Quakers out there? I’m trying to find out what happened to one of the women who founded two land trusts in Denver, Iris Greene. She founded We-Life (aka Institute Mountain West, aka Institute for the study of Nonviolence) on 22nd & Emerson, and She-Life, aka Women in Transition House on 1895 Lafayette St.

    The Quakers, or “Societies of Friends”, were very active in the antiwar movement in Denver in the 1970s. Is there an archive or collection of historical docs anyone knows about?

    The House select committee investigating the January 6 insurrection of the US Capitol formally announced Thursday that its first public hearing will take place on June 9 at 8 p.m. ET.

    The advisory does not list any witnesses for the hearing but says additional details will be released next week.

    “The committee will present previously unseen material documenting January 6th, receive witness testimony, preview additional hearings, and provide the American people a summary of its findings about the coordinated, multi-step effort to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election and prevent the transfer of power,” the advisory from the committee states.
