Don't Miss the PROGRESSIVE Council Forum
It's Where You'll Hear Answers to Questions About People and the Planet
By Stan Shapiro
Well, there are forums and then there are Forum EVENTS. On March 21, we're having a Forum EVENT. And the reason it will be special is this: WE are going to ask the questions, that is the progressive community.

We've all heard how the City has to keep trimming the workforce, give tax breaks to everyone except working people, and rein in the greedy public workers and their unions. And betcha there will be plenty of forums in which candidates will be well prompted to adopt that agenda. We have another agenda, though, and it's people and planet oriented. And that's what WE will be asking about on March 21. So, if you think this Forum will truly be an EVENT, and you want to help make it so, here are two things you can do:
First, come to the first ever Progressive City Council At-Large Progressive Forum. Here are the details:
What: Q & A involving candidates for City Council At-Large
When: March 21st, 6:30-9 PM
Where: Philadelphia Free Library, Central Branch
Co-sponsoring organizations: Neighborhood Networks, Philly for Change, Americans for Democratic Action, Women’s Community Revitalization Project, Philly NOW, U of PA National Lawyers’ Guild, Philebrity, PhillyCAM, PennAction, Keystone Progress, Pennsylvanians For Reform (list in formation)
Second: Let us know if you represent an organization that wants to cosponsor the event. Let YOUR voice be heard! You can get added by dropping me a note at firstname.lastname@example.org....
