Save the date: you’re invited to join us at WSCO’s Annual Meeting!
The West Side Community Organization Annual Meeting is a celebration of our community and all that we've accomplished together in the past year. Join us for music, food, and powerful conversation! All are welcome. As always, this event is free and open to the public.
Please note the new date and time: Sunday, November 6th, 2022 from 4:00pm - 7:00pm at Harriet Island Wigington Pavilion, 200 Dr Justus Ohage Blvd, here on the West Side.
This year’s theme is “Stories of Our Past, Visions of Our Future.”
To organize for a just and joyful West Side today, we must also learn about and understand the lessons from our past. Our work today as a community organization is rooted in our history here on the West Side. We are grounded in the histories of displacement that have affected the our neighborhood, from the forced removal of the Dakota people in 1851, to the destruction of the immigrant community on the Riverside Flats in the early 1960’s, to today’s displacement of low-income people of color due to rent hikes, eviction, and gentrification.
