It’s time for our monthly meeting again! We’re getting together on Wednesday evening at 7:00. Our focus this month will be on poverty and economic inequality, and we have a couple of experts joining us for the discussion. First, we’ll hear from journalist and author Sasha Abramsky, who has written about poverty in America. Next we’ll be joined by representatives from The Poor People’s Campaign, an effort to redefine morality and shine a light on economic injustice and racism that is based on the work of Martin Luther King.
As usual, we’re gathering in Room 10 at Sierra2 Community Center, 2791 24th Street. Hope you can join us! Our meetings are always held on the third Wednesday of every month.
Next Tuesday (May 22nd), we’re having a postcard party at the Arcade Library. We have the postcards, we just need you! Join us to write cards reminding Democrats to vote in the upcoming Congressional elections. Every little bit helps in the fight to take back Congress.
This event starts at 7:00 at the Arcade Library, 2443 Marconi Avenue.
Call Our Representatives!
Paul Ryan may be retiring, but don’t think for a moment that he’s finished with trying to make poor people’s lives harder. Congress is debating the Farm Bill, and Ryan and his ilk are using this as an excuse to slash food stamps and impose draconian “work requirements” that will withhold assistance from of hungry families across America. Call your Members of Congress this week and make sure they will NOT vote to support any Farm bill that includes cuts to food stamps or the Republicans’ “Welfare Reform” scam.
