EVENT: Meet the Disruptors Happy Hour

GET TICKETS

 

It’s been a full week of events on politics, the environment, art, city planning, and more. Your brain is swimming with ways to make Philly even better, and your phone is full of new friends and organizations who can help. Before you head out to get things done, come help YIP wrap up State of Young Philly at this informal happy hour in partnership with our good friends at the The Philadelphia Citizen. While this is a laid-back affair, we still have a couple tricks up our sleeve…

First, Meet the Disruptors! The Philadelphia Citizen regularly features locals young and old who are shaking up social impact from all angles–government, for-profit, non-profit, activism, you name it. You can read all about them here: http://thephiladelphiacitizen.org/category/dropdown/meet-the-distruptor/

Several Disruptors will be joining us for the evening to mingle, share their stories, and hear about yours. We’ll give everyone a short introduction, and then we’ll give everyone a beer.

Which brings us to our second announcement: Beer! Our friends at  Philly Homebrew Outlet East will be on hand to supply you with lovingly homemade suds, so you can drink the change you want to see in the world.

The Philadelphia Citizen will only publish thoughtful, civil posts. We want to be a communal space. But that doesn’t mean you have a First Amendment right to be an idiot. Send us an insulting, offensive and/or wildly off-topic comment and not only will we refrain from posting it -- we will laugh at you before we hit delete.
