Thursday, July 21st the granny Peace Brigade brought our Fund School Educational Programs message to the East Harlem Youth Fair. Our table attracted 74 gamers, mostly students, to participate in the Ms. Gizmo Penny Poll. They were asked to considered the programs they would like to see in their schools, by distributing the 20 pennies they were given to select their choices. The Ms. Gizmo cylinders filled up as they considered their interests and needs.
Once again it was a rewarding experience for all as well as an opportunity to speak with the community youth and hear what matters to them and why.
The GPB message: It’s time to reallocate the $1.5 million funding for Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps (JROTC) in 18 NYC high schools to programs students want and need. No to JROTC military programs. We support peaceful educational alternatives.
Here are the results of the penny poll which focused on student’s educational interests and needs.
