"Home For The Holidays" Fundraiser

Occupy Freedom School is having its first fundraiser this Saturday to help fund its daily operations as well as help us restore a house on the South side to help serve the nearby community.

Occupy Freedom School is schedules to open its doors to the Washington Park community January 7, 2013. There are a plethora classes offered at OFS including but not limited to yoga, restorative justice, media literacy, history, and music. A community garden is being established across from the center where additional learning will take place. In order to complete this mission we must first restore this historic greystone home in time to have a wonderful holiday present to give to the Washington Park community.

There will be food, music, and some awesome items up for silent auction. It will be from 4-6:30pm at 5638 S. Woodlawn, graciously hosted by SHoP (South side Hub of Production).

Tickets are $25 in advance and $30 at the door, and all money raised will go toward materials for OFS and toward helping renovate 6026 S. Vernon.

  1. We'd like to thank Laura and all the good people at SHoP (Southside Hub of Production), for allowing us to use their space on such short notice and being so accommodating. We want to thank Bec Behlen for providing much of the food from last night. Also, we need to give some shout outs to Ben Wilkes and Dan B. for providing us with some great music. Of course big thank you's are in order to Open Produce, Hyde Park Produce, Cedars, Chaturanga Holistic Fitness, pH Productions, the Fair Trader and everyone who contributed toward the silent auction. And last but certainly not least, thank you all who came out in support of OFS and our vision for providing an alternative in community based education!
