Power of the Pen: Take action to keep the government open

February 7 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

February 7: Power of the Pen / Speak out to end hunger and hardship #TrumpShutdown

February 7: Power of the Pen / Speak out to end hunger and hardship #TrumpShutdown**This is a new monthly event brought to you by Just Harvest.**

Speaking out is a way to exercise your rights.

Speaking out effectively is a way to change the world. Coordinated letter writing to those in power is a proven way to make progress on critical issues.

So join us at the launch of Just Harvest’s public action series, Power of the Pen.

Each month we’ll discuss a key policy issue that’s causing hunger and economic hardship in Allegheny County. Then we’ll write letters to government officials and newspapers calling for change.

>> This month’s focus is Pres. Trump’s threats to shut down the government again on February 15 if Congress doesn’t meet his “border security” demands. All you need to bring is a willingness to put pen to paper to share your perspective of how this is affecting you or your community.

Location info is below the registration form.

**Child care will be provided. Refreshments will be served.**
