PNN Newsletter: Anti-Trump Rally, Community Day, Rally Against Vouchers, More

PNN’s mission is to engage, educate and empower our neighbors to make our City a better place to live. Here’s what’s coming up in each of these areas:


  • Engage: Juneteenth & Community Day Celebrations

  • Educate: Home Ownership Conference, Lobby Against Vouchers in Harrisburg

  • Empower: No One Is Above the Law Anti-trump Rally



"No One Is Above the Law" Rally - TODAY!

Friday, May 31st, 5PM, North Apron of City Hall


Yesterday, a jury of regular citizens, after hearing the evidence and arguments from both sides in a court of law, decided that the Mango Menace was guilty on all 34 felony counts! It is unprecedented in our nation's history that a former president of the United States in now a convicted felon. Shameful as this is, this moment is not one to be ignored as normal news.


So, today at 5PM we will be joining our allies and friends on the North Apron of City Hall to stand together and say that "No One Is Above the Law!" We will be entertained by Voices Rising Philly, who will regale us with pop tunes re-written as funny songs, and we'll be handing out "GUILTY!" posters to passersby and, most importantly, showing solidarity against a true menace to our nation.


Let us know if you'll be joining us by clicking on the link below.

Day of Action Against Vouchers

Monday, June 10, All Day, State Capital, Harrisburg


Join allies and activists as we descend upon our state capital to let legislators know we oppose efforts to use our tax dollars to fund private schools. This will be a combined rally and lobby day. The idea of the rally is to highlight voices of parents, students and teachers and to call into direct focus that Jeffrey Yass and other billionaires are pushing our students into private schools with public money. Let us know you're interested and we'll help arrange a ride.


Also, please take a moment to sign this letter supporting public funds be directed exclusively to public schools.
