Party with eefers for a Damn Good Cause

It's time for another one of my parties, and this time it's for a good cause. I want to help make Norman Siegel our next Public Advocate. As part of the Siegel in the City house party series, I'm throwing a fundraising house party for him this Friday, July 8 (that's tomorrow, yo).

For those of you who don't know him, Norman has been representing Critical Mass riders and those who were arrested during the RNC, among others.

As Executive Director of the NYCLU (1985-2000), Norman was involved in some of the City’s most critical civil rights and civil liberties struggles, including: the creation of an independent Civilian Complaint Review Board, the successful defense of the Brooklyn Museum’s right to exhibit controversial art and the fight for citizens’ access to the steps of City Hall for protesting.

In the last three years in private practice, Norman has advocated for and represented the newly created Association of New York City Education Councils and the Williamsburg community’s right to keep its local firehouse open.

The minimum suggested donation is $10, but I encourage you to donate more.

To receive the e-vite send me an e-mail.
