"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.
