The Urban Democracy Feast: Supporting Local Social Justice Projects

Saturday, 25 March 2017 at 4:30 p.m.

Since 2015, a group of community organizations have started a face-to-face crowd funding process. This process occurs over a meal so we can exchange information about shared problems, common obstacles and ways to overcome them. So far we have had three events, in May 2015, December of 2015, and November 2016 where we have raised more than $3000.oo to support social justice projects demonstrating direct democracy and accountability. We define social justice as equal access to all the resources and services. More information about the FEAST and the awardees can be found at our web page, http://www.urbandemocracyfeast.org/

The goal of the organizers is to generate funds that kick start projects that might otherwise not get funded, or help them make a qualitative leap in their work. Such projects submit an application, and four applicants are selected to make a five-minute presentation at the supper. Their presentations will exhibit evidence that they are addressing a shared need, with the support of other groups in the neighborhood, and that the project demonstrates direct democracy.

The next FEAST will be held 25 March 2017 at the 1st Congregational Church located at 345 W. Michigan Avenue (Bronson Park).
