Thank you to everyone who attended Inwood Legal Action’s Saturday May 4 Film & Panel Benefit, “The Fight for Inwood” at Good Shepherd School Auditorium. We had a full house, with close to 250 people who joined us. We shared excellent food & drink, saw the acclaimed documentary “My Brooklyn”, and heard the panel of organizers and experts. They spoke on the discriminatory impacts of the Inwood rezoning and other recent NYC rezonings, and what we can do fight them.
A special, very big thank you to all the businesses, organizations, panelists, and volunteers to contributed to make our Saturday May 4 benefit screening & panel event a huge success.
We couldn’t have done it without you!!
