Open bar, good food, awesome people: Next Wednesday is our annual solidarity awards event, 5:30 pm at 1319 Locust Street!

Don't forget--a week from today, on 5/23 at 5:30 pm we celebrate our annual awards event! With an open bar, great awardees, and good food, it's an event you don't want to miss.

WHEN: Wednesday, May 23rd, 5:30 pm
WHERE: AFSCME 1199c Union Hall, 1319 Locust Street

We've heard from a lot of folks that price is a concern, and I want to make sure everyone knows: while we ask all who can to pay $75 a ticket, tickets are sliding scale for seniors, low-income, students, and the unemployed. While we ask everyone to give something, we do not want financial hardship to keep folks from the event.
Ticket payments can be made at the door, or mailed to: Philly JwJ, 1315 Spruce Street Ste 331, Philadelphia, PA 19107.

It'll be a great evening, and a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the ways that the labor movement, Philly JwJ, Occupy Philadelphia, and other groups worked together last year to advocate for social and economic justice--and to celebrate the continuation of that work through projects like this month's crucial efforts to save our city school system.
As usual, we have a stellar slate of award recipients:

Henry Nicholas, President, AFSCME 1199c and strong Occupy supporter

Jody Dodd, Occupy Philadelphia Legal Collective organizer

Jim Savage, President, USW 10-1 and Occupy Philadelphia eviction night arrestee

Amanda Geraci, Occupy Philadelphia Safety Working Group and key Occupy organizer

Occupy Philadelphia, for its outstanding work in changing the local and national discourse

Come join us as we celebrate the hard work and audacity of these local activists. It should be a night to remember.
