It's a forum featuring a number of our federal elected officials (trans: Senators and Congresscritters). If you're interested in hearing what they have to say, or if you have something you'd like to tell them, you owe it to yourself to attend.

Date: Today, Sunday, May 2

Location: St. Francis College, 180 Remsen Street, Brooklyn Heights
Directions: 2,3,4,5 trains to Borough Hall; M,R trains to Court Street/Borough Hall

Featured Speakers:
Senator Kristen Gillibrand
Senator Charles Schumer
Rep. Yvette Clarke
Rep. Jerrold Nadler
Rep. Nydia Velasquez

Sponsored by: Independent Neighborhood Democrats (IND), Lambda Independent Democrats, Central Brooklyn Independent Democrats (CBID), New Kings Democrats

(full disclosure: I am a member of CBID)

This event is free and does not require an RSVP. Just show up!

I'll be there; I hope you will too.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
