Mutual Aid Project for Unhoused Folx
Hey neighbors! As the pandemic rages on we have more and more unhoused folks in the community and those numbers will only go up significantly when the eviction moratorium ends on December 12th. The immediate need is cold weather sleeping bags preferably on the larger side and tarps. We can pick up. Please and thank you !https://docs.google.com/…/12aufvc8gaNyCg…/htmlview

The PO Box Collective is proud of this beautiful report about our public memorial for victims of police violence, and so grateful to collaborating artist Matthias Regan — Cheap Art for Freedom (CAfF) — and PO Box Collective members Fabi Subia and Mariela Aranda for representing it so well. Begun on July 4th, the installation continues to grow with visits and contributions from community members at all times of the night and day.
Join us every Sunday 11am-1pm, under the El tracks at Glenwood and Farwell, to add a name to the wall, pick up a free poster, or just show your solidarity. Add your voice!
