Celebrating the Year of the Wood Dragon with W.O.W.

January - February 2024

Lunar New Year and Year of the Wood Dragon preparations are upon us!! We have a packed month of programming upcoming including the launch of our annual From Chinatown, With Love collaboration with Abrons Arts Center and Lucky Risograph which in its 4th iteration will provide much needed mutual aid to 12 businesses within a 2 block radius of the megajail site.

Swing by for any or all of our upcoming gatherings and join in us as we fight with a renewed commitment for a world in which Chinatown serves and is shaped by its community, a world in which prisons and jails do not exist, and a world of abundance, safety, and reciprocity.
