Occupy the City Highlights

 


In solidarity with Mayor Ras J. Baraka and the rest of our City’s Mayors, sign up to attend “Occupy the Block”.







“We cannot afford to let up now!” ~ Mayor Ras J. Baraka


The Mayor is challenging the MEN of this City to stand with him in doing the following:

  • Hold court on the designated blocks
  • Open discussion about the City, its youth, and violence
  • Engage with the community and play games (chess and cards)
  • Shut down illegal activity

*Women are welcome to participate and are encouraged to bring the men in their lives to these events.

Please bring your folding chairs, tables, and get ready for transformation.
