Wednesday, July 27 from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m.
At 30 Delancey Street between Forsyth and Chrystie Streets inside Sara Roosevelt Park!
Come Learn How to Take Control of Our Parks and Community Spaces.
Led by NYCommons, with the support of the Stanton Building Task Force, this gathering intends to build capacity for the leadership, membership and park-going public of New York City to insure that designated public spaces remain accessible to the public and under the stewardship of the public and their representatives. Public parks and public open spaces are among the few places left in an increasingly segregated city that are truly democratic preserves.
