Blueprint for a Just Neighborhood: House-Raising and Opening Celebration

Join us for a house-raising and house-warming celebration as we put the finishing touches on the framework for an affordable house at the “Blueprint for a Just Neighborhood” site in South Kensington. The evening will feature the performance of "Neighbors?", a Philadelphia scene scripted by playwright Mona Washington. The play will serve as a reflection on the possibilities for engaging with and in the community, while also grappling with issues of gentrification and displacement.
