Hope Rocks

MTP will have a booth at the Hope Rocks Festival in Saugerties (https://ulstercountyalive.com/calendar/hope-rocks-festival-saugerties and http://morserocks.com). Our presence is important – especially if we want to attract young people. It’s a free, two-day festival during which visual artists, filmmakers, performance artists, etc. gather and display their talents in an environment which is focused on bringing hope to those who are suffering with the effects of addiction, depression, and social isolation. MTP will promote voter registration, discussion of the candidates we are supporting, the work we are doing, who we are and what we stand for. If you’d like to participate, please call Jonathan at 914-523-3766 or email  jonathangross25@gmail.com.  For more info, click here.

Right Size/Right Cost the Greene County Jail

This is a big issue, with major consequences for Greene County residents and our children. MTP is working with folks all around the county to stop the bond to build a jail that is way too big and way too expensive. They want to build a $52,000,000 jail, which will, over 30 years, cost the county (and our descendants) more than $80,000,000. Save the Dates – there will be an “action” on one of them, and we need you to participate. If you’re interested in learning more, email diana.abadie@yahoo.com.

Any Time Donation
If you haven’t yet, would you consider making a donation to MTP? We anticipate expenses – postcards, postage, printing costs, etc. A donation in any amount would be appreciated. Visit our website for an easy way to donate: https://mtpny.org/donate/

MTP Book Group to Form!
Open to all genders and ages. A Monday or Wednesday evening is preferred, but if there is interest in a different day, let us know! The idea is that we’ll read histories of NY with literary and political angles, share thoughts as we nosh on sensible appetizers and assorted beverages that each of us contributes; meeting at rotating homes. Limit of 12 participants, be the first to register! Suggested readings from our participants. I would like to start next month…Please contact Susan Kukle at susankukle@gmail.com
