Join us in welcoming Ben Cohen, co-founder of Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream and Head Stamper of to Shire City Sanctuary. Working to support an initiative that intends to get big money out of politics, Ben will be joining us in the beautiful Berkshires to share his time, wisdom, and ice cream! Yes, you read that correctly, Ben will be scooping FREE ice cream courtesy of Ben & Jerry's.

Volunteers in Mass need to collect 90,000 signatures by November 22 to get the initiative on the ballot. Representatives will be on hand during the event to share information about the ballot initiative, offer opportunities to sign the petition, or sign up to volunteer, stamp money, and best of all, share ice cream!

A bit about the organization-

People Govern, Not Money is an all-volunteer led signature gathering effort working to advance the 28th Amendment to affirm that We the People - not big money, not unions, not corporations - govern the United States. The group includes Massachusetts citizens of various political affiliations, demographic backgrounds from towns across the state, volunteering their time to make the 28th Amendment a reality.

Crispina will be conducting a clothing drive for her next 5x7ft rug at this event. Please bring with you a freshly laundered discarded piece of stretchy clothing that is gray in color. Sweaters, sweatshirts, sweatpants, tshirts, leggings and even single socks work great! The making process begins at the event- Profits from the sale of the rug will be donated to People Govern Not Money to promote their cause. Be a part of the community we will weave together to create an amazing rug (and hopeful future).

We hope to see you there!
