Wish the election was over already?
We’ve laughed and we’ve cried and no matter what happens, most of us could probably use a drink and a cuddle. Nurture that revolutionary soul with dance. Let’s reinvigorate as a community so we can get back to the urgent organizing to boldly do the real work.
Get Lucid! And The Philadelphia Citizen present the Election Hangover Party at Ruba Club on the lucky date of Friday 11/11/16. Make a wish for Philadelphia and let’s look forward together, leaving the charades and shenanigans of the election behind.

The Philadelphia Citizen, a non-profit, non-partisan media organization, has a dual mission: To provide deeply reported journalism that emphasizes solutions that can move our region forward, and to actively reignite citizenship in and around Philadelphia. We seek to identify our innovators, call out those who stand in the way of progress and shine a light on the next generation of Philly leadership—all while giving Philadelphians the interactive tools they need to become more involved, engaged citizens. Philadelphia doesn’t just need another news organization. It needs journalism that focuses on solutions that, together, we can help bring to fruition. It needs a movement of citizens who refuse to outsource leadership to a political class long characterized by an insidious transactional culture.
Since 2012, Get Lucid! The Activist Dance Party has gathered grassroots organizers, artists, and party-goers from diverse communities across Philadelphia to fundraise for and celebrate various social justice organizations. The Activist Dance Party is a blend of local music, interactive performances, spoken word and visual experiences centered around the celebration of Philadelphia’s art and activism. The various contributors, leaders and members are now all actively engaged in new projects and carrying this work in new directions. On 11/11 we’ll be celebrating those new directions and bidding farewell to the Get Lucid! Astronaut.
