Last month, People's Liberty announced its latest group of grant recipients. Each of the eight grantees receives $10,000 to make a positive impact on their communities. Projects range from Brick Gardens, an urban gardening model using indoor vertical towers to grow produce, to The Costumed Sidewalk Parades, spontaneous theme-based parades inviting people to explore new parts of the city.

Joining us to discuss the current People's Liberty grant projects are local artist and musician Rachelle Caplan, who is creating the Cincinnati Mobile Music Lab interactive pop-up instrument showroom; Cincinnati State Community & Technical College Program Chair and Professor of Bioscience Technology, Aaron Greene, whose Bioscience Cincy interactive displays will encourage locals to explore science and conduct experiments; and People'?s Liberty Vice President of Operations Jake Hodesh.

Powered by the Haile/U.S. Bank Foundation and the Johnson Foundation, People'?s Liberty invests in the people of Cincinnati, to improve the City of Cincinnati.
