Hafa Adai Todus Hamyo,
As some of you may or may not heard, I recently became the Chairman of the Independence Task Force on the Decolonization Commission. Over the past year, since the change in Governor, there has been much more debate and discussion about political status, and so it is possible that we will be holding a self-determination plebiscite in the next few years.
As the Chair of Independence I'm looking for anyone and everyone who is interested in helping get the message out about decolonization and Chamorro self-determination in general, but also independence as a political status option in particular. Please read below and see if you are interested in helping out.
I am looking for:
1. Independence Task Force Members- Each political status has their own task force comprised of 7 members. These members are responsible for officially representing their political status option to the rest of the island and to those who are eligible to vote in the self-determination plebiscite. If you are a task force member there will be responsibilities for researching and writing about independence and possibly speaking in public about it.

2. Volunteers for Independence - Those who would want to help independence, but more in the sense of attending events, helping organize things in a more volunteer basis. Anyone with any skill set is encouraged to help out. There are plenty of things to do.

If you are interested in either of these please let me know as soon as possible. I would like to have a meeting for the Independence Task Force this month or early next month. I am also working on a website and a email list, and so if you would just like to be added to an email list, please let me know.

Si Yu'us Ma'ase para i tiempon-miyu.
