Thank You to everyone who came out to support the CHARAS / PS 64 Holiday Card Delivery to Mayor de Blasio!
The Lower East Side was able to deliver close to 2000 holiday cards asking Mayor De Blasio to return CHARAS/El Bohio, PS64 to the community as a community center. Along with the holiday cards, close to 500 petitions were also delivered to the Mayor calling for the return of the 605 East 9th Street building.
Rosie is working with the Save Our Community Center Coalition 64 (SOCCC64), settlements houses, senior, cultural and educational centers to get this building back. Local elected officials representing the Lower East Side have been supportive of this effort. You can find some photos from the event below.
If you are interested in getting involved in the campaign to return CHARAS/El Bohio to the community please contact the office at 212-677-1077.
