This Thanksiving, give thanks to the families and small businesses of the JP/Rox community that are resisting displacement! Join us for a march from the JP Brewery to El Embajador Dominican restaurant. We’ll end the march with a big feast

Several families at 26 School Street are struggling to stay in their homes because their landlord, City Realty Group, wants a major rent hike, and the ultimatum is to move out. Meanwhile, a few blocks away on Washington Street, local businesses are facing displacement after the same corporation bought the property they rent with hopes of building luxury housing on the land.

We say YES to our vibrant community in the face of corporate colonization of our neighborhood. Join us to CELEBRATE and SUPPORT families and small businesses (and eat some wonderful food!)
