Alumna Makes the News Organizing for Change in Philly

Alumnae Cecily Harwitt, Liz Manlin and Rabbi Lauren Grabelle Herrmann have been hard at work organizing congregants in Philadelphia to stand up and demand a living wage for workers at Philadelphia International Airport and a more democratic and transparent school system for all Philadelphians. Their organization, POWER (Philadelphians Organized to Witness Empower and Rebuild) recently held a 3,400 person action around these issues and others. Check out this story covering the action from WHYY in which Rabbi Grabelle Herrmann is quoted.
