Right smack dab in the middle of town/I found a paradise that’s trouble-proof (Up on the roof)
And if this world starts getting you down/There’s room enough for two up on the roof (Up on the roof)—Gerry Goffin/Carole King
PJALS Steering Committee members Taylor Weech and Louise Chadez sponsored a fundraising party on June 27 up on the roof of the Saranc building in downtown Spokane. Dozens of their invited friends came to hear poetry by the Love and Outrage Collective, music by Lucas Brookbank Brown and PJALS director Liz Moore. All in all, we raised a little over $1600!
We met many new people, some from as far away as Guatemala recently settled in Spokane. Others were long time supporters/veteran activists and some were graduates of PJALS’s Young Activist Leaders program. Plus, friends and family of many of the attendees.
If you would like to host a fundraising rooftop party for your friends and family, comrades and allies, co-workers and neighbors to have an opportunity to learn about all the amazing work the Peace and Justice Action League is engaged in, we can help you with the planning. You do the inviting, decide on the theme if any, whether there is entertainment or poets or whatever vibe you want to make of it; we’ll walk you through it. PJALS director Liz Moore, will be there to speak about PJALS triumphs and needs. Contact us at [email protected]
