SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 19th, 12pm to 4pm
This is a rescheduled date from the 12th.
Recreation as Resistance
Joy is a form of resistance. That’s why we’re joining together on Saturday, September 19th, 12pm to 4pm at Lake Pickerel (Lily Regional Park, 550 Lilydale Rd.). Lilydale is a place with a long history of police violence against Black, Indigenous, and people of color communities on the West Side. We're reclaiming that space through recreation and joy because we believe the outdoors should be a safe space for all West Siders – no matter what we look like or where we come from.
Our Recreation as Resistance event will include free mini-workshops and activities, including fishing, birding, kayaking, a nature walk, a community mural, a "Poetree", and more. This is a family-friendly event. All people are welcome. The event will center people most impacted by police violence. Please email Ellie Leonardsmith with questions, firstname.lastname@example.org.
