NJ OFF Fossil Fuels Launch
Food & Water Watch - New Jersey – Join Food & Water Watch and allies from across the state as we launch the NJ OFF Fossil Fuels coalition campaign! On the first day of the 2018 legislative session, Assemblyman Tim Eustace introduced A1823, legislation requiring all electricity produced and sold in New Jersey come from 100% clean renewable energy sources by the year 2035! And we have a commitment from Senator Diegnan to introduce a companion bill in the State Senate on January 22nd! This new bill is the most aggressive clean energy legislation ever introduced in New Jersey, and represents a major leap forward in our collective work to end the era of polluting and unjust fossil fuels. On Monday, January 22nd front line community members and clean energy leaders from throughout the state will stand with Assemblyman Eustace and Senator Diegnan for a press conference to publicly announce this critical new legislation. Afterwords we'll mobilize through the halls of Trenton to speak with our own elected representatives and urge them to co-sponsor the bill. All participants will receive a fact sheet, talking points, and a lobby training to fully prepare them to speak with their representatives. Join us for this critical next step in the campaign to make NJ the leading edge of the Clean Energy Revolution!

Become a Museum Volunteer at the Louis Armstrong House!
Louis Armstrong House Museum – Do you know how Louis Armstrong rose from poverty to become one of the most prolific musicians in the world, and one of the most important celebrities in the 20th century? Did you know that Armstrong was a Civil Rights pioneer and broke racial barriers as early as the mid 1920s? Thousands of people living or visiting New York still don't know that the American icon of Jazz music lived in a humble home in Queens for 28 years. You can help us tell his story. In 1943, Louis Armstrong and his wife Lucille made their home in this modest house in Corona, Queens. Louis loved his neighborhood. He used to get his hair cut around the block at Joe’s Artistic Barbershop. He would invite the neighborhood kids into his living room, where Lucille fixed everyone a bowl of ice cream and they all watched westerns on television. Often, he would host many of the musicians that also lived in Queens, including Dizzy Gillespie, who lived around the block and used to come play cards with Pops! Today, the Louis Armstrong House Museum is a National Historic Landmark and a New York City landmark. Administered by Queens College, the House opened as a museum in 2003. Everything in it is original! Volunteers give guided tours of Louis and Lucille’s historic home to students, musicians, celebrities, and tourists from all over the world. Some of them bring their own memories of Louis! As a volunteer you will also participate in concerts and special events, and become an expert in the jazz tradition. You will receive a discount in the Museum Store, free admission to the Museum, a free t-shirt, discounted tickets to special events, and recognition at our annual Staff & Volunteer Holiday Party. The Louis Armstrong House Museum is located on 107th Street in Corona, Queens. Visit Pops’ wonderful world and give yourself the opportunity to share his story with others. *Aspirant volunteers will be greeted by the Director of Research Collections, Ricky Riccardi. If you would like to become a volunteer, but you are unable to attend this event, please send us the form available at: louisarmstronghouse.org/volunteer

Call to Audition: Pippin
Cabaret Theatre – Join us at auditions for Cabaret's 4th and last main stage production of the 2017-18 season: PIPPIN, directed by Ajit J. Mathews ?? ABOUT THE SHOW With music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz (Godspell, Wicked) and a book by Roger O. Hirson, PIPPIN tells the profoundly human story of a man as he strives to rise above the mundane and to achieve something exceptional. Schwartz’s timeless pop-tinged music (featuring “Magic to Do,” “Corner of the Sky,” “I Guess I’ll Miss the Man,” “Morning Glow,” and more) underscores and heightens Pippin’s journey of self-discovery through war, sex, politics, and love, ushered along by a mysterious but encouraging troupe of players. Deceptively lighthearted at face value, the musical’s tone quickly shifts and ultimately challenges the audience with one question: how far are you willing to go to be extraordinary?
