Help P.O.W.E.R Plan for MLK Jr. Day ACTION! (12.22 @ 6 pm)
P.O.W.E.R is planning a large-scale march and action on MLK Jr. Day (01.19.15) to build on the momentum from the rallies and protests this fall and work towards building a broad-based racial justice coalition. The working title of the day is “MLK Day of Action, Resistance, and Empowerment.” POWER is hoping to turnout no less than 5,000 members to stand up and say that “Black Lives Matter” in Philadelphia.

They would like people to help plan (and P.O.W.E.R is actually giving lead time!!!) so if you’re interested or have been wanting to get involved, this is your chance!

A planning meeting will be held Monday, December 22 at 6PM at Mother Bethel AME Church (419 S. 6th Street, Philadelphia, PA). People will be divided into working groups including: Logistics; Agenda; Public Relations; Volunteers; Security; Budget; Fundraising; Outreach; Demands.

Hannah C. will be out of town and can’t attend the meeting on 12.22.14 but let her know if you are interested and she’ll put you in touch with others who are attending.

After the new year, we’ll talk more about getting an Old First group together to be a part of the rally on 01.19 as well, so if you’re interested in participating then, also please talk with Hannah C., Mimi J. or Mike W.
