It's a busy time here at Philly JwJ. Over the next two Wednesdays, there are two parties coming up. We need you to join us in anger at one, and in celebration at the other.
Anger: Crashing Mayor 1%'s Party
this Wednesday, 5/22, 2:00 pm
Westin Philadelphia 99 South 17th Street
Mayor Nutter has spent $45,569 in taxpayer dollars on membership to the United Conference of Mayors--money that could have been used to help out our struggling schools, neighborhoods, and working families. As UCM President, he's flown to Italy, China, and around the country for free, portraying himself as a model leader.
Meanwhile, our schools are closing and the number of city workers living below the poverty rate has DOUBLED.
This week, Mayor Nutter celebrates the last UCM event of his term as "America's Mayor." Let's join our friends from AFSCME in letting him know that Philly's sick of our mayor buying titles and placing 1% interests ahead of the rest of us--join us Wednesday!
Celebrate: Philly JwJ's Party!
next Thursday, 5/30, 5:30 pm
1319 Spruce Street, 1199c
Next week is Philly JwJ's Solidarity Awards Night, featuring awardees Barbara Rahke (PhilaPOSH), Daniel Denvir, Kahim Boles (AFSCME DC 47), IATSE Local 8, and PCAPS.
