Rep. Vanessa Lowery Brown
190th Legislative District
Rep. Vanessa Lowery Brown will celebrate the holiday season with two open houses in December.
Hello! I am your State Representative Vanessa Lowery Brown. I want to make sure you are aware of the current Voter ID regulations. For this upcoming election, the courts have ruled that you WILL NOT need a photo ID to vote at your usual polling place. You will be asked to present a photo ID when you go to vote, but do not let them turn you away if you do not have one. You have the RIGHT to vote. I consider every person’s vote to be important, so please contact my office if you need help obtaining one or if it is your FIRST time voting at a new polling place. My office at 1435 N. 52nd Street is available to help, or you can call my office at 215-879-6615. Thank you, and please, be sure to vote on November 6!
I will hold two holiday open houses to help the quality of life for local children. The first will be 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 20 at Sayre High School, 5800 Walnut Street. The second will be 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 22 at The School of the Future, 4021 Parkside Ave. Get a bite to eat, learn about state programs to benefit children or just say hello. We can sing some holiday songs, and I'll have some giveaways for our young people. These open houses are open for everyone, but you need a reservation and a ticket. Please RSVP my office at 215-879-6615.
Rep. Vanessa Lowery Brown will be hosting an HIV testing clinic from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Friday, Nov. 18 at her constituent services office at 1435 N. 52nd St., Philadelphia. Brown’s office will be working with the locally based group, Bebashi, who will be conducting the free, confidential screenings. Preliminary results will be available in about 20 minutes. “Knowing your HIV status is more important than ever, since so many treatment options are available for keeping the virus in check. It is no longer a death sentence, unless it goes untreated,” Brown said. Bebashi was founded in 1985 in response to increasing incidences of HIV/AIDS in the urban community of Philadelphia, at a time when there were no HIV/AIDS educational programs or services targeting the African-American and other communities of color. More information is available by contacting Brown’s office at 215-879-6615.
On Monday, November 14, I’m sponsoring an economic recovery and job fair with the city of Philadelphia, from 10 till 3 at the Hilton Philadelphia, 4200 City Avenue. There will be helpful seminars and workshops for job seekers, such as writing a resume, finding where the jobs are, interviewing skills, and how to apply for jobs online.
