Empowering Citizenship

An ongoing series promoting political engagement hosted by various community members

The Studio@620 invites you to participate in "Empowering Citizenship", envisioned as a medium for citizens to present locally relevant issues with opportunities for immediate political engagement.  The initial meeting will be held on Friday April 2 at 7:30 PM with a focus on recycling.  Andy Fairbanks, Pinellas County's Recycling Coordinator, will present a brief slide show and moderate the discussion.   Donations accepted at the door but no one will be turned away for inability to pay.  Come find out about current issues in our community and how you can take action as an informed citizen!  Please RSVP to 727-895-6620
