As the holidays wind down for the season, we invite you to our cozy offices for an activism mixer to celebrate the social justice work that has been accomplished around housing in 2019, and to look ahead to the next decade. Whether you’re working on the ground or an ally, all are welcome!
Food, cake, drink, and general merriment will be provided by the NPHM.
To add to the celebration, we will share a festive sound collage that features spoken word clips from our Oral History Archive. The audio includes many charming memories of the holidays in public housing; Elvis Presley gifts, food traditions, and a particular Christmas tree that set its owners apart from the rest of the neighborhood.
Storytellers include Deonte Black, PJ Fitzgerald, Marquita Gandy, Bill Gwodz, Carol and Diane Rizzi, and Kimberly Wellington.
This event is wheelchair accessible. Individuals requiring sign-language interpreters, real-time captioners, or other accommodations should contact Mark Jaeschke at 773.245.1621 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
