This Monday GEM will meet to review some of the work over the past year. The film was only part of the work - and it is pretty amazing that we did that massive project while continuing to meet every month, work with parent groups all over the city, attend most PEP meetings, build alliances with the other activist groups, etc. By the way, as of last night we had 725 reservations for the premiere. Still room for 800 with 2 days left. Don't get left out of this gala event.
