ELIZABETH, NJ - A  free workshop on cultural advocacy will take place September 25, from 7 -  8:30 p.m.,  at the Liberty Hall Wagon Shed Building. Designed for arts, cultural and history organizations, the workshop will impart how advocacy can support an organization, the community and cultural life in general.

Adam Perle, the President and CEO of ArtPride New Jersey Foundation, will host the session.
