September first Thursday meeting

September 5, 2019: Meet us at Second District Brewing 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.

All are welcome!
