The Philadelphia Democratic Party hasn't always been the most democratic. Join prospective state representative Chris Rabb, author Karen Bojar, Democratic committee person Michael Bell, and Moira Kulik for a panel discussion on how political outsiders like Rabb and Bell have taken on the political machine and won.

Bojar's latest book, Green Shoots of Democracy within the Philadelphia Democratic Party, explores the recent history of Philadelphia politics. It's been described as "A rigorous, completely absorbing case study of Philadelphia’s political structure, the book is both an insider’s guide and a primer on taking back the party." 

This casual evening of converation and networking is a must for anyone thinking about running for office or just interested in Philly politics generally. Light hor d'oeuvres will be served.
