Power of the Pen: Take Action for a People’s Budget in PA!
May 29 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED DUE TO WEATHER. OUR APOLOGIES FOR ANY CONFUSION.
Power of the Pen is a 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 for 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: The PA Budget Must Put People First! With Pennsylvania’s budget due June 30, it’s time to take action along with allies across the state to make sure we get a budget that prioritizes people over corporate profits. That means ensuring key programs and services like General Assistance, human services, and public transit are fully funded in 2019-2020.
All you need to bring is a willingness to put pen to paper to share your perspective of how low wages affect you or your community.
