Once again, I will join many other Philadelphia progressive activists at the meeting of Philly For Change, at Tattooed Mom, 5th and South streets, in Philadelphia. Candidates for local offices will show up there, including:
Sherrie Cohen, Helen Gym, Eryn Santamoor. and Deja Lynn Alvarez, for City Council at Large;
Alan Butkovitz, for Mayor;
and Kay Yu, for Judge. Please come and ask them how they would work for the people of Philadelphia.
every first Monday of the Month, the Parkway Central Branch of the Free Library of Philadelphia (http://freelibrary.org) holds its Monday Poets Reading Series; last night I took part in an open reading, along with other fine regional poets. The next reading, on May 6, will be on the theme “Whitman@200: Art and Democracy,” featuring Leonard Gontarek and poets from the Poetry in Common Workshop. Please look into this, and please support your local libraries and other educational venues.
