text Cleveland ABC in Dire Straits Cleveland ABC 2008-12-01 10:22 PM
The Cleveland ABC is in dire straits! We are short on members and time, and growing shorter by the minute. We need to find the bright minds and hard workers of this region, north-east Ohio, and work together to amplify our message, to impact the community, to build a strong network of resistance in our area.
