How the Grinch .. err.. rather... the Baltimore Inner Harbor Stole Christmas!
KIDz City is taking a little break until January--when we'll begin planning some really fun things, and of course we want your wisdom, knowledge, ideas, and energy for all of that.
However, I am really writing to let yall know about the following event. One of our favorite organizations in Baltimore is putting on a activist theater event tomorrow, and I wanted to spread the news.
"In a twist on Dr. Seuss’s classic “How the Grinch Stole Christmas,” low-wage workers and community allies will tell the story of rampant wage-theft, poverty wages, and other human rights abuses taking place at the Cheesecake Factory, Hooter’s, and other vendors on Thursday, December 16th. While harbor developers and vendors make huge profits from the holiday shopping season, workers face another reality, one in which they struggle to meet their basic needs."
What: “How the Harbor Stole Christmas,” a community play and action.
When: Thursday, December 16th 11 AM-1 PM
Where: Gather at Panera Bread at Pratt St. and Market Pl. (across from the ESPN Zone)
Hope that some of you can make it tomorrow.
