A Day Field Organizing w/ COCOON team / by Eric Etheridge

Breakfast meeting at Jimbo's -- eggs, grits, steak, pancakes, bacon, toast, oj & coffee. In August over 100 people participated in COCOON workshops marking memories on a community memory map, recording testimony, making symbolic memory objects and having their photo portrait made. We talked about what worked and didn't work, how to reach more people and groups, and Fall at Jackson, Melrose and Morrisania Air Rights Houses. 

Knocking on doors in Morrisania Air Rights Houses and talking with people about COCOON. Mirana Zuger, Taj Collins, Jewels Marshall and Alejandro Salgado leaving Jackson Houses.

We joined the afternoon Peace Walk that Kyasia organized in response to violence in the neighborhood.


Join us for Saturday's COCOON workshop here at Morrisania Air Rights Houses from 11-2, Refreshments.
