The Poor People’s Economic Human Rights Campaign Alternative Spring Break Info Sess

Ross “Rosendo” Levin ’15 is really freakin awesome and extends the opportunity to be awesome to you:

An experience of learning by living, communal living, anti-poverty organizing and bridging barriers through dialogue and action in one of the poorest urban neighborhoods in the country. The Poor People’s Economic Human Rights Campaign is a nationwide, multiracial movement that does everything from organizing marches to defending families from evictions to occupying vacant land to grow food. This is not some cushy non-profit. The group is led by the poor and people of color. For decades, in various incarnations, they’ve been working to ensure, as the name suggests, that their basic human rights are met and taking care of each other when society doesn’t. From March 10 to 17, students will have the opportunity to live in the home of a member of PPEHRC in Philadelphia, PA and participate in anti-poverty organizing classes and actual anti-poverty organizing, ranging from knocking on doors to home takeovers.

There will be two informal info sessions to talk more about the details, costs (not very expensive at all), and whatever else you’d like to know.
