Atif Akin will lead us in a worksop designing and implenting information architecture for Uptown Summer, spreading the word about environmental justice in North Troy and beyond! 

Mapping Dialogue: Artist and Poet Cara Benson from the Millay Colony for the Arts from week one of Uptown Summer returned today to work with the ‘Youth Change Makers’ on how to construct a poem that consist of only memories.

The youth change Makers spent time walking around the neighborhood mapping places of violence. They interviewed people asking them about their own personal experiences of violence in the neighborhood and they mapped their own personal memories of violence. 

Assemblyman John McDonald joined us to speak about important issues within the community as we enjoyed discussion about Troy

City Council members Erin Sullivan-Teta and Lynn Kopka came to the Sanctuary for lunch and spoke about important topics in a symbiotic discussion about topics regarding our community.
