5th Square, Philly's urbanist PAC and advocacy organization, will be hosting a regular monthly meet-up on the second Thursday of the month. Our May monthly meeting at Craft Hall was a great success, and this month we'll be meeting at Booker's in West Philly.
At our June meet-up we're excited to welcome special guest Jamie Gauthier, winner of the 3rd District Council primary, who 5th Square supported enthusiastically. Jamie will make some brief remarks and we'll have some time for Q&A with attendees.
Jamie Gauthier is an urban planner and was most recently Executive Director of Fairmount Park Conservancy, and before that, ran Sustainable Business Network. Her historic victory in the 3rd District was the first time anyone has successfully challenged a district Council member since 1995.
This will be a casual social gathering, so if you've been meaning to check out one of our events or meetings but haven't made it out yet, this will be a good first one to come to. And please bring a friend or two!
We're hoping these monthly meet-ups will become a fun way for new and existing supporters to connect with other people involved with 5th Square and urbanist issues in Philadelphia, either professionally or in a volunteer/activist capacity, and learn more about what our all-volunteer organization is up to. In the future, we'll also be inviting some guest speakers to come discuss their work with the group. Suggest possible speakers to us at [email protected]
