The 1st Annual Activist Ball has been a success! Thanks to the collaboration with Sarah Francis, the creative and supportive efforts of community leaders, politicians, academia, local business, local organizations, regional and national activists, independent media, a host committee with clout, the abundant resourcefulness of Dan ‘the bagel man’ Kontoff . even a marching band with 8 ft. dancing puppets on stilts… We as OBR.fm/CAMP and encuentro 5, are now able to move forward with our efforts to make our community a better place for all.
I’d like to personally think Nadeem Mazen, Chris Faraone, and Ayanna Pressley for their participation in our first Activist Ball, and would like also like to thank all the people that helped outside of the ball. It’s the unity, love, and hard work from all parts of the community that made this possible.
