Every year, the U.S. President gives his views on the State of the Union.
What if “We the People” reflected in our own communities on the state of
our union locally, nationally, globally? During the week of January 23-31,
2016, groups from across the country—including Ithaca—will be joining our
stories, creativity, and voices together to supplement the President’s
stories with our own.

Ithaca area’s second annual People’s State of the Union (#PSOTU2016) event
is supported by Civic Ensemble, CCE-Tompkins County, the Multicultural
Resource Center, and The History Center in Tompkins County. Volunteers from
the community will facilitate “story circles” to make sure everyone’s voice
is heard. Local artists and musicians are donating their time and
creativity to the event, too. Beginning at 6:30 p.m., the public is invited
to come together to enjoy free refreshments and music and share personal
stories about our own experiences of life in this nation.

The event is open to all, but space is limited. Please reserve your spot by
sending your name and email address (in case of weather-related schedule
changes) to PSOTU14850 at gmail.com or by filling out the form on our webpage
