Come hear the 2017 Green candidates speak! You’ll have the opportunity to meet Akeem Browder, James Lane, Frank Francois, Julia Willebrand, and Persephone Sarah Jane Smith, among others, and participate in a Q&A. Other speakers will include Kenneth Chamberlain Jr., the son of retired Marine Kenneth Chamberlain Sr., who was murdered by White Plains police, and Taylonn Murphy, the father of Tayshana Murphy, who died as a result of community violence in Brooklyn. As of yet unconfirmed speakers include Nicholas Heyward Sr., whose 12-year-old son was killed by Brooklyn police in 1994, and former Green Vice-Presidential candidate and activist Ajamu Baraka. The food will include a wide variety of vegan options as well as standard BBQ fare. We’ll eat, chat, and dance to celebrate the end of petitioning and refuel (on passion and energy) for the fight to come (campaigning).
