GPB at the Senior Learning Series in Teaneck

At the invitation of the Institute of New Dimensions, part of a Senior Learning series at the Ethical Culture Society in Teaneck, New Jersey on February 10th several of the Grannies gave a presentation with an overview and recap of GPB activities and campaigns since our inception in 2005. Accompanying Phyllis Cunningham, Barbara Harris, Carol Huston and Nydia Leaf was Ms. Gizmo coming out of winter hibernation.

Interest in the presentations on the part of attendees more than compensated for the sparse audience. Barbara’s presentation on Counter Recruitment and the militarization of youth elicited many questions and people gathered up the various information materials to share with families and friends.

The most attention was for using Ms. Gizmo as attendees were eager to express their Fiscal Year 2011 allocations and here are their results…

  1. Arts & Culture
  2. Education
  3. Environment & Clean Energy
  4. Health Care
  5. Housing
  6. Jobs
  7. Military
  8. Transportation
