This is a reminder for our actions on the City Budget. While conversation is surely going on in quiet corridors, we still have time to shape the mayor's proposed budget - especially, fighting against the tax cuts that only benefit the wealthy.
Today at 4PM: Budget Rally at City Hall
We will be joining our allies on the South Apron near the Catto statue at City Hall TODAY at 4PM to call for a budget that reflects the priorities of the majority of Philadelphians.
The rally will feature a number of speakers, including our own Stan Shapiro, and will culminate in a march to the Chamber of Commerce office at the Belleview Hotel where we'll take on a giant piñata filled with budget demands.
We hope you will join us.
Budget Blitz: Tonight (Before Council's Meeting)
Timing Is Everything. We got word that Council President Clarke is trying to get the budget voted on as early as tomorrow morning. So, we will call and email the mayor and select members of City Council all day today and tonight. And where we are able, we'll also like and share PNNs' budget demands on Facebook and Instagram, and re-tweet our posts.
To this end, I have provided you with a Budget Blitz Toolkit. It contains a brief overview of our objectives and tactics, an overview of our demands, and scripts and sample copy for your phone calls and emails, your posts and tweets (when applicable).
HERE IS THE TOOLKIT. IT IS EASY TO USE. OPEN IT TO SEE WHAT YOU'LL BE DOING:
As always, thanks so much for your activism. When the politicians hear about our calls and emails from their staff, when they see us on their media feeds, they are reminded that we're watching them.
Thanks for your help!
