Richard Gage, AIA, to speak at 9/11 TAP Summit
Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth CEO and Founder Richard Gage will be speaking at the 9/11 Truth Action Project Summit in St. Petersburg, Florida, this Saturday, February 6th. He will be joining pioneering author Kevin Ryan and civil engineer Jonathan Cole, P.E., in speaking to activists from all over the Southeast United States.
The presentation is part of a summit/retreat that is being put on by the 9/11 Truth Action Project (9/11 TAP) — a collaborative group of activists from all over the country who are raising awareness of the various unanswered questions surrounding 9/11 and other related issues.
The entire event runs from February 5th through 7th.
Over the course of the weekend, many opportunities for collaborative discussions and brainstorming will be offered, enabling activists focused on 9/11 and other issues to reassess their goals, strategies, campaigns, and tactics.
The 9/11 Truth Action Project asks that those wishing to attend RSVP Mikie Smith as soon as possible by writing to Mikie9TAP@gmail.com. The event organizers will be asking for a nominal contribution of $35 from all summit participants to cover their limited costs. Tickets for the entire summit can be purchased through the Eventbrite link below. Tickets for each individual event can only be purchased at the door.
