Poverty Skolas in Person at Clara’s Books in Seattle!
September 30, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm PDT
Housing activists at the Freedom Socialist Party, Real Change and House Our Neighbors are excited to announce some special guests visiting Seattle in a couple weeks! We will be co-hosting several of the poverty skolas from the Oakland-based POOR PRESS, a poor people–led/Indigenous people–led, grassroots, non-profit arts organization dedicated to providing revolutionary media access, art, education, and advocacy to silenced youth, adults, and elders in poverty.
We will meet at Clara’s Books in Columbia City to discuss the books written by the skolas and talk about what we can do for our unhoused friends, family and neighbors as we continue to fight for accessible housing.
Join us and attend the Social Justice Film Festival the following day to see “When Mama & Me Lived Outside” on the big screen!
