  1. Richard Tucker says:

    I would appreciate staying with someone who offers to host speakers at the conference. If that is not feasible, can you suggest an inexpensive motel?
    Thanks, Richard Tucker

    • Mary Liepold says:

      Hi, Richard. We live in Silver Spring, on Metro’s Red Line. Hubby & I have a sleep sofa for sure & possibly a bedroom. Wld you like to make a reservation?

      • Hi Mary, i’m coming down for the conference from boston on sept. 22 to union station. any chance you’d still have a room left for the 22nd and 23rd? i’d leave for union station straight from the conference on the sunday afternoon some time.

      • Ruth van Veenendaal says:

        Are you “filled?” I am coming from NJ and would love to stay where I can park my car… I am hoping to come Friday and leave Sunday after the workshops or speakers are done…
        (I am a 75 year old female Quaker. I can bring my sleeping bag and sleep anywhere!!)

  2. Alice later says:

    I would like a ride from New York City if anyone is driving down. I also need a place to stay, preferably without stairs as I’m getting on in years! Many thanks. Alice Slater

    • Looking forward to seeing you at the conference Alice!!

    • Alice Slater says:

      I now have a place to stay but still need a ride from New York City. Anyone driving down?

      • Sherri Maurin says:

        Alice- hi! I am flying to DC from California, but I am going up to NYC after the Conference. I wondered if you found a ride back yet? Thanks-

        • I may be driving down from Woodstock on Friday.Call me tomorrow (Thursday). I donn’t drive at night so if I go, will leave Sunday early.

      • Alice, I may be going. If I do I could meet you somewhere. Call me 845 706-0187.

        • HI, Tarak–I haven’t had internet access where I am staying. Just seeing this. Are you by any chance driving back to NYC on Sunday night or early Monday morning? Would love to ride with you. Haven’t seen you yet—hopefully you are here! Sherri (415) 250-7986

  3. Mary Liepold says:

    I have one guest room that I’ve already offered to a friend from MA – not sure she can come, though. I also have a sleep sofa – first come, first served. We’re in Silver Spring, close-in suburb & close to the Red Line.

  4. Diane Roche says:

    We would be able to offer our basement guest room for one or two participants for free. There is also an affordable conference center located at 821 Varnum St. NE. $45/night included continental breakfast. Contact Clara Callahan at ccallahan@stuartcenter.org about the possibility of staying at the Stuart Center.

  5. There is a youth hostel in DC and you need not be a youth.

    We have a Coordinating Committee member with 4 guest rooms — I think 2 spoken for so far. Contact us.

    The Harington Hotel is pretty cheap.

    Some churches allow free sleeping in the church.

    Post what you need here!

    Post what you can offer here!

  6. Some of us have rented a house and split the cost 9 ways. Use this board to organize another similar rental!

  7. Here’s a link to hostels in the DC area: http://www.hostels.com/washington-dc/usa

    There is also the Quaker House:

  8. I am looking for someone/an organization or project concerned with health in war/post-war zones to share a sponsorship to the conference. This would mean sharing a table for information/organizing, and splitting the cost of the sponsorship $250. Please email me if you are interested. Thanks claudia@iraqichildrensart.org

  9. Anyone planning on going from Western NY? Rochester/Buffalo area? I would pay to ride with you.

  10. Jeffrey DeCristofaro says:

    I live in Asheville, North Carolina, and I would like to pay in advance and in person to join a local chapter headed to the No War conference. Does anyone know where I can get a ride?

  11. Twila Jacobsen says:

    Coming from Oregon on the 22nd and needing a room Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights close to event.

  12. Sherri Maurin says:

    Coming from San Francisco on Friday the 22nd and staying till Monday the 25th.
    Looking for hospitality, or inexpensive housing within walking distance of conference, please.

    Also, Baltimore seems to have the most reasonably priced flights.
    Is that the best airport?
    Are there rides available to/from?

  13. I need a place to sleep. I can bring a bag and pad and sleep on floor. Also I would like a ride from Hartford, New Haven, or NYC, or points between.

    If you need help setting up I can take a bus on Thursday and help on Friday.

  14. need a room for one.

  15. Who has a couch I can sleep on?


    Before booking the train or bus, I thought I would check to see if anyone is driving to Manhattan (non-smokers–allergies) Sunday evening after the conference or even as early as dinner time.

    I would be happy to share costs etc. and be delighted to have people to talk with about all we have heard.

    I will have one “carry on” sized bag. Thanks

    • Sherri, I will drive back to NYC but will not drive at night so I would leave during the day on Sunday. Call me at 845 706-0187

  21. Jeffrey DeCristofaro says:

    I am a local activist and freelancing photographer who wants to be a part of this event. I need to know if there is a chapter based in the greater Asheville, NC region that is attending, and how to reserve my space. Please message me ASAP the contact info to the people in charge, and where I can meet them in person to pay for my ticket in advance.

  22. I will need a place to crash on FRiday and Saturday night. I have a car.
