Our second-to-last In The Park was one of the best yet. These nights are really some of my favorite of the year. Don’t miss our final movie night next week at Westside Park - we’ll be screening both Up and… The Little Mermaid! See you there!

Thinking about the great a little extra today on what would’ve been his 34th birthday. His absence looms large but his life and his art will forever shine on through the community he loved so much and all those he inspired. Happy birthday, Nip. We miss you.

Café Europa is a social club inviting Holocaust Survivors to gather to build supportive relationships. As yesterday marked the 2 year anniversary of Charlottesville, it is important to listen and learn from these survivors. Thank you very much for having me today.

Momentum is building in our fight to close the gender pay gap. My hope is that other cities across the country will join us in demanding that compensation and prize money for sporting events in their city limits be based on talent instead of gender.
