      GRASP First Thursday - Open Primaries & Minority Party Candidates in the City

      We hope you all enjoyed your summer - we're back and ready to go! GRASP has found a home not that far from our original location (thanks, Adobe!) just on the other side of Broad at 2nd District Brewing Company - many thanks to Curt at 2D for being hospitable and giving us this opportunity. With that said come on out to 2nd District Brewing for our First Thursday Meeting on September 5th at 6:30pm to talk about open primaries and minority party candidates in the city. The first hour we will be speaking with partners of Open Primaries PA - Jenn Bullock of Independent Pennsylvanians, Pat Christmas on behalf of League of Women Voters Philly and Committee of Seventy, and Micah Sims of Common Cause PA. Discussion will revolve around the coalition's commitment to open and free elections in Pennsylvania that lead to responsive and accountable government. We will also be taking your questions! The second hour will be a panel discussion of minority party candidates in the city of Philadelphia. We'll discuss how city government is structured for minority parties, mostly relating to City Council, but also talk about how representation in a dominantly one-party city is achieved. Come on out and help us celebrate our new location, talk about our community, and enjoy some delicious beer and food! Bring a neighbor! RSVP - $0.00 Donation RSVP - $5.00

      Cost: 0.00 to 5.00
