We (Too) Are Philly: Whose Parks? Our Parks! Festival Closure

  • Norris Square Park 2100 North Howard Street Philadelphia, PA, 19122 United States (map)

Come to the final event of the We (Too) Are Philly Summer Festival. In an area that is rapidly being gentrified, in a city that is rapidly being gentrified, join us in saying no to gentrification. We are here to stay. Each reader will bring to the fore their experiences with gentrification. You will also get to hear the organizers of the festival read their work. Bring your blankets (we will have a few), your anger, your joy. xoxoxo
