"The formative aspect of politics requires public spaces that gather citizens together, enable them to interpret their condition, and cultivate solidarity and civic engagement."
-- Michael Sandel
Planning and organizing Saturday’s rally over the past 10 weeks with my partner in crime, Deborah Brown, has brought back a lot of happy memories from the activism of my 20s. I am reminded that the work we do together in pursuit of a better future is one of life’s best gifts – and one that costs nothing.
As the late Congressman John Lewis said, let’s get into some “good trouble” by highlighting solutions to Montgomery County’s growing crisis of affordable housing and homelessness. We have posters made and ready-to-go, speakers finalized, and a handful of service organizations slated to table at our event. Our goal is to get more people off the sidelines and engaged on this issue with their elected leaders.
All we need is you!
Debbie and I at The Montco 30% Project hope to see you on the county courthouse steps in Norristown (across the street from One Montgomery Plaza) at 1 p.m. on April 1st.
