Today I took part in the taping of Conversations Across Time (https://www.conversationsacrosstime.net/) at PhillyCAM, the public access channel of Philadelphia. (https://www.conversationsacrosstime.net/) . We discussed immigration and the private prison industry how that industry profits from warehousing Central American immigrants fleeing poverty, gang violence, and repression in their homelands; I played Associate Justice Antonin Scalia.

Later on, I went to South Philadelphia High School, to attend a class for election board workers, people who supervise the process of recording people coming to exercise their right to vote, and have their votes counted. We learned of setting up the polling station on Primary Election Day (May 21 in Pennsylvania), setting up the machine for accurate voting, taking down the machine, and passing the results on to be recorded.

In both locations, we emphasized the importance of people going out to vote. If you reside in the City/County of Philadelphia, please look up the website of the City Commissioners, https://www.philadelphiavotes.com/ .
