Hungry For Housing!

This Past weekend Occupy Our Homes ATL, Community Ministry Christian Church, Antioch Baptist Church, and American Friends Service Committee teamed up to organize a community meal to raise money for Tacco Cullins and awareness of the housing crisis Atlanta is under the lash of.

The dinner was a big success and a lot of fun. Speakers, which included Tacco Cullins and Chris Frazer, were powerful and the food was delicious!

Events like this are important, not only because they raise money, because they build community. We need communities to take on this historic housing crisis facing the city, and if those communities don't exist then it's up to us to help build them.
