About this Event

Join the Save Chinatown Coalition and Writers Room for Our Streets: Part II, a collaboration to build solidarity between anti-displacement movements in West Philadelphia and Chinatown.

In Part I, we met at the Dornsife Center to share stories of what community means to us, with a focus on gentrification led by the University of Pennsylvania and Drexel University. In Part II, we will meet at the Folk Arts-Cultural Treasures Charter School (FACTS), a beloved community hub that was originally slated to become a parking lot for the Phillies before activists intervened. In this historic space, we will reflect on what's possible when we come together and build power, to imagine what we can do united in our current struggles against displacement.

There is limited parking available at FACTS, and we ask workshop attendees kindly allow our elders to park in their attached lot. Street parking should be available in the neighborhood.

Please RSVP to help us have an accurate headcount, but no one will be turned away!

Contact Teddy with any questions about the story sharing workshop at [email protected].
