Dedication Ceremony for the Homeless Liberation Reference Library
Malcolm X said "My alma mater was books - a good library."
And homeless scholar and longtime civil rights warrior Jean Rice says that "Knowledge, based upon diligent study, experience, and astute observation, remains the most formidable weapon in all creation."
That's why we're so excited about the opening of the Jean Rice Homeless Liberation Reference Library. We've been working hard on this groundbreaking resource, and we can't wait to share it with the world.
And we hope you'll join us.
A reference library conceptualized, curated, and run by homeless New Yorkers, where people experiencing homelessness can educate themselves about subjects as diverse as job readiness, history, computers, social justice, current events, and so much more.
Our Homeless Liberation Reference Library will give people experiencing homelessness the tools to change their lives, and to change the world. Whether it's writing a resume or learning more about the achievements of the Black Panthers, we will help homeless people arm themselves with knowledge.
PLEASE JOIN US FOR THE DEDICATION OF OUR LIBRARY.
Your $15 ticket gets you wine, cheese, great company... and a book dedicated in your honor.
