We have big plans for this year and need your help to make these projects a reality. We are building our capacity to further our reach and strengthen our educational programming and advocacy work.
Some of these projects include:
Penntrification: Voices from the Black Bottom
Explores Penn and Drexel's history of aggressive gentrification of the West Philadelphia neighborhood of the Black Bottom, now known as University City through a short informational video.
This public education project will draw links between university driven gentrification, the over policing of communities, and the depletion of public resources in West Philadelphia. Funds will go towards paying an animator, videographer, editor, supplies and other costs associated with the production of this work.
General Operating Fund
As an organization committed to Direct Action and a diversity of organizing tactics, we have overhead costs, including:
Art supplies for banners and posters
Megaphones and a quality sound system
Payment for community voices and advocates
Community care items (Protective equipment for
in person actions such as masks and hand
sanitizer, water, etc.)
Your support could go a long way. Regardless, we appreciate you taking the time to learn more about us! If you can't afford to give right now, please consider sharing this fundraiser with your community.
