Jess Fest!

 —  —

Tellus360, 24 East King St, Lancaster, PA

  • Join us for Jess Fest! A concert to benefit Jess King for Congress, featuring Vinegar Creek Consituency, The Vulcans, and Nielsen Family Band, Daryl Snider & Jesse Barki, at Tellus360.

  • There will also be a silent auction with art and items from local vendors.

  • Jess will speak at 7:30pm. Food and drink will be available for purchase from Tellus.

  • Ticket link below

  • Jess King is a working mom, small business champion, and a leader in local economic development. She never planned on running for office. But after a career fighting for working families in Pennsylvania, she joined the race for the 11th District because too many of us are working hard for too little while a greedy few rig the game in Washington.

  • Her life and work bridge the district’s diverse constituencies - from faith-based business owners and working families of color, from refugees and rural farmers. She is a respected, authentic local leader with a deep local and national network. Jess will win this seat in November by speaking to issues that matter to everyday people: including Medicare for All, debt free public college, and protecting our immigrant brothers and sisters. And she’ll do it as a grassroots campaign, ground up – with your help – without being in the pockets of big money.

  • You can learn more about her story here: https://www.facebook.com/jesskingforcongress/videos/477661736023874/?t=0
