70 groups representing social, political, environmental and civic causes will once again bring their tables full of literature, petitions, and passions to The Historic Y for our second annual Community Volunteer Fair.

New this year: mini-workshops, 15-20 minutes each on the following topics: 3:30: Best Practices in Registering a Voter, the OFA Way; 4:00: Letters to Editors — Join Us and Learn How; 4:30: Fake News or Real News: How to Tell the Difference; 5:00: Using the Arizona Legislature’s Request to Speak Program (RTS); 5:30: Islamophobia and Its Effects on Muslim Children.

The festive atmosphere will feature food, drink and music in the lovely lobby and courtyard of The Historic Y, 300 University at 5th Avenue, as seasoned activists and new volunteers socialize and mobilize for positive change.

The fair will end with a staged reading of a new political play, “The Real Machiavelli,” by playwright Monica Bauer as part of Bad Hombres and Nasty Women's nation-wide “Not My President’s Day” protests. The free play reading begins at 7pm, at the Scoundrel and Scamp Theatre inside The Historic Y.
