Your generous donations this month will go to help support the good work of The Philadelphia Student Union, a youth-led organization that exists to build the power of young people to demand a high quality education in the Philadelphia public school system. Through leadership development, media making, organizer training and political education the Philadelphia Student Union gives young people the tools and support they need to be leaders in their schools and communities. We are proud to match every donation dollar for dollar!
Upstairs opens at 6PM, but our “doors” open at 7, and the reading starts around 8.
Accessibility Note: reading is upstairs and non-bumper car seating is limited, and tends to be first-come, first-serve. If you need assistance or accommodations, please let us know.
