Last Friday’s Fish Fry Fundraiser at the Jefferson School was a big success in every way:
- Attendance was great —200+ people signed up, 59 of them at the sponsor levels. Thank you all!
- Actually, attendance was even greater — another 100 people were a block away at the Federal Building protesting the Supreme Court decision to strike down Roe v. Wade, and when they heard Sen Lucas was speaking they came over to hear her… so in the end, we had a crowd of 300!
- Financial success — we think this will put us in a good financial position to work hard on all the political issues facing us.
State Senator Louise Lucas was amazing; the crowd greeted her enthusiastically and she really returned the love, pumping up the crowd to “fight like hell” to defend women’s right to choose from Republican attacks. Watch these CBS19 and NBC29 clips (we got them to come over from covering the Federal Building protest to interview her about the Supreme Court’s Roe decision).
