Field updates from across the state

 NEPA Pride

“On August 11, 2014 Put People First! PA in the Northeast held our first tabling event at the NEPA Pridefest at Kirby Park in WIlkes Barre. Members Paul Deppen, Brad and Gail Artley, Alia Trindle and Nijmie Dzurinko worked together for a very successful event. Over 70 people took the health care pledge, and 7 signed up on the spot for membership. We’ve been following up with all the people we’ve met to build relationships and keep them connected with Put People First. The response has been very positive and energizing. We had a gathering over coffee this past Saturday at a local Bakehouse in Kingston, PA. We have more outreach events planned for the coming weeks, and are building relationships with local partners. I must say I am very excited by the positive response we are receiving from everyone I speak to.” — Deb, NE PA Field Organizer
