LPR Presents: Ilana Glazer- The Generator Series (Night 1) at Murmrr Theatre: 17 Eastern Parkway, Brooklyn NY 11238
Generator is a movement inspiring people who live in the U.S. to humanize policy through storytelling. We achieve this by using social media platforms to share about how policy affects our everyday lives. Founded by Broad City’s Ilana Glazer, Ruby Anaya and Glennis Meagher, we humbly admit: we don’t know shit!
This Generator Series is a limited 4-part event focused on progressive candidates running in the midterms and activists working towards social justice. Ilana Glazer will be interviewing activists and politicians to see how they each serve us – the people. This election might be one of the most important in our lifetime, so we are also coordinating volunteer buses for those able and interested the weekend of November 3rd to canvas for the candidates you see at the show. We’ll also share additional ways to volunteer – let’s do all that we can and work together to make sure this election counts.
And you – yes you – will get the chance to record your own Generator video at the event with the help of fellow Generators. Learn more at generatorcollective.com.
The Generator Collective
Generator Collective aims to be a community for Americans to share their stories on how they have been impacted by political policy – both positive and negative. We want to humanize policy through storytelling by helping organize the noise of these policies into digestible, human stories, and overall lower the political barrier of entry.
The Generator was created by three women who want to help reduce the political divide and start human conversations around how policy impacts real people.
Perry Gershon, Zerlina Maxwell and Jess McIntosh
Perry Gershon is running to represent New York’s First Congressional District, located in Eastern Long Island. Perry is not a career politician. He’s a successful businessman and entrepreneur, a creator of jobs, and a family-man with a deep devotion to Long Island and the issues that matter to working families.
Disturbed by a Washington political class that cares more about themselves than everyday Americans, Perry decided to leave the private sector and run as a Democratic candidate for New York’s 1st Congressional District. In Congress, Perry will use his talents and energy to fight for Long Island’s middle class – defending access to affordable healthcare, preserving our precious environment, ensuring access to quality education for all, protecting the right to choose, and most of all, improving the availability of higher paying jobs.
