Earlier this month, Melissa had the opportunity to be on a panel at the BlogHer 2012 Conference about Latinas in Elected Office. Melissa talked about the key role social media plays in engaging with her community (Thanks followers!!) and beyond. It was a great experience conversing with like-minded politically active Latinas. Oh, and did we forget to mention that President Obama spoke via satellite?
We can all agree that not cleaning up after your dog on the street is an unsanitary nuisance, so it’s time to do something about it. We’re looking for volunteers to assist with our initiative to promote being a responsible dog owner and member of the community.
On Saturday, August 25, we will be holding a series of events as the launch of the “There is no Poop Fairy in East Harlem” campaign. We will need volunteers to assist in setting up the event as well as going out in the community to help educate dog owners on the need to clean up after their dogs. If you’re available to help out during the morning and early afternoon on that Saturday, please call (212) 828-9800.
Please donate your time to help improve the cleanliness of our neighborhood. We really appreciate it and hope to hear from you soon & see you there!
