Webster commends $19,000 grant awarded to Playcrafters of Skippack

(Mar 15, 2022)

HARRISBURG, March 15 – State Rep. Joe Webster, D-Montgomery, today announced the awarding of $19,000 in grant funding poised to enhance and propel the theatre arts in the 150 th Legislative District. The grant was awarded through the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development and will go towards vital repairs to the Playcrafters of Skippack’s building. For over 70 years Playcrafters of Skippack has staged plays and musicals for and with members of the community. “Providing a space where individuals can pursue their passions for the theatre arts, while simultaneously supplying affordable, family friendly entertainment, continues to have positive implications for our community,” Webster said. “This grant funding will make certain that necessary maintenance is performed to the Playcrafters building so the shows can continue to go on unabated.” The award will be used to offset the cost of necessary repairs to the building including renovations to the HVAC system and rehabilitating an outdoor staircase, along with cosmetic upgrades. Webster said supporting the humanities, such as theater arts, is a great way to strengthen communities and leads to a greater understanding of each other. People with questions may call Webster’s office at 484-200-8263 or email RepWebster@pahouse.net . Read more

Lawmakers to seek easier name-change process for LGBTQ+ Pennsylvanians

(Jan 20, 2022)

HARRISBURG, Jan. 20 – Members of the LGBTQ+ Equality Caucus are introducing legislation that would destigmatize and create a safer and easier name-change process for LGBTQ+ Pennsylvanians, especially transgender, non-binary and gender expansive people in the commonwealth. The Pennsylvania LGBTQ+ Equality Caucus is a bipartisan and bicameral caucus made up of members of the General Assembly whose mission is to advocate for equality for LGBTQ+ communities across Pennsylvania. Reps. Brian Sims, D-Phila., Dan Frankel, D-Allegheny, and Sen. Katie Muth, D-Berks/Chester/Montgomery, are co-chairs of the caucus. Spurred by a Pennsylvania Senate Policy Committee hearing on the barriers in Pennsylvania for the transgender community in June 2021, members of the caucus worked with stakeholders to draft six key pieces of legislation to update Pennsylvania’s antiquated name change process and provide funding and safeguards for those seeking to change their name. The legislative package is being co-authored by Frankel and Muth, Reps. Nancy Guenst, D-Montgomery/Phila., Emily Kinkead, D-Allegheny, Ben Sanchez, D-Montgomery, Melissa Shusterman, D-Montgomery, and Joe Webster, D-Montgomery; and state Sens. Amanda Cappelletti, D-Delaware/Montgomery, Tim Kearney, D-Chester/Delaware, and Lindsey Williams, D-Allegheny. Co-sponsorship memorandums have been circulated and the LGBTQ+ Equality Caucus is calling on their colleagues in both chambers to sign onto these important Read more
