civics 101

as the east end project liaison for the legacy center, sherry has been working with a local non-profit to host a grassroots leadership course.  last week they met at the city council building.  the vice mayor and several council representatives were there to greet the students and talk about how local government works.  it has been an important exercise in civic engagement and a key learning experience for those eager to make a difference in this city. many of the participants are neighbors and friends from our east-end neighborhood.  (sherry is standing on the far left).


here sherry and isaac cuddle in the back row of the council chambers.  and here's sherry talking with the vice mayor.
