Neither vacations or summer heat can stop us

I thought I'd send you all off for the weekend with some good news for a change. As you may know, the ACLU of PA has been holding a series of town hall meetings on the abuse of power. We had three this week - Harrisburg, Philadelphia, and Allentown.

We were a little worried about turn-out in the middle of the summer, but I am happy to report that we set attendance records for events in these areas! In Harrisburg, we had 100, in Philly, 200; and in Allentown, 100 dedicated souls squeezed into a room intended for a crowd of half that size. That's 400 Pennsylvanians who took time from their summer festivities and braved the humidity to find out how they can get involved in the fight to stop this Administration's blatant abuses of power. So watch out, Washington!

If you live in the Pittsburgh or Erie areas, you have a chance to catch one of these town halls next week. If you live elsewhere in the state or for some other reason weren't able to attend one of these town halls, it's not too late to get involved! Watch this space for more details next week.
