Having organized in the South Bronx since 2011 for community control of our hoods, we have finally decided to lay down some roots and open a radical community space–the first of its kind in the South Bronx.
Besides a very spacious indoor area, there is also a backyard which features a beautiful mural, picnic tables and raised garden beds.
Our space will be community-run and will feature different classes (yoga, ESL, art and crafts, media), host reading groups, serve as a meeting space (for organizing around police brutality, tenant issues, etc) and a people’s library. We also want to take advantage of the spacious outdoor area and build a sustainable garden to grow vegetables.
To get ready for our grand opening in a few weeks, we need building materials and equipment to renovate the space. This also includes furniture for the indoor space ing equipment for the backyard area.
We are asking you to help build the first radical community space in the South Bronx. No donation is too small. Thank you for standing with us. Solidarity!
