Join us on April 7 for an opening reception of the We Shall Not Be Moved exhibit at the Julia Richman Education Complex in Manhattan! The evening’s program will include presentations by bank tenant activists and organizers from Boston and neighboring cities, as well as a street theatre skit by members of the Bank Tenant Association. Please come out and be inspired by the organizing success happening in Boston as we talk about the challenges facing NYC and the surrounding areas.
About We Shall Not Be Moved:
We Shall Not Be Moved combines compelling photography and moving audio testimonies to tell the story of families fighting to protect their homes and communities against the devastating impact of foreclosure. Documentary photographer Kelly Creedon, in conjunction with City Life/Vida Urbana and the Bank Tenant Association, captures this timely grassroots struggle in the Boston area.
About the Julia Richman Education Complex:
Built in 1923 as an all girls commercial high school, Julia Richman flourished. But by the 90’s, after years of budget cuts, unsuccessful reorganization, and academic decline, a new approach was called for. In 1995 the building was redesigned from a single school into small autonomous learning communities. As a multi-age, multi-service learning community, its building-wide programs and shared common spaces rely on thoughtful planning and building-wide collaboration.
