4B Town Hall

-WHEN-
Monday, March 21st | 6 - 8 PM ET @ NCHW multipurpose room


The Asian Pacific Student Coalition, Latinx Coalition, UMOJA, and Natives at Penn are hosting a town hall to discuss space, the cultural resource centers, and the ARCH/VPUL expansion proposal. Last fall, Amy Gutman offered for PAACH, Makuu, and La Casa Latina to expand out of the basement and into the entirety of ARCH and the building directly next to it. Here, we are providing a forum for us to discuss the pros and cons of accepting such a proposal, as the fight for space has been a long and nuanced one.

We invite all those who care about the future of the cultural resource centers to attend. Whether you've never been to ARCH or are there everyday - we want to hear your voice! Help us shape the future of what Locust Walk will look like.

All are welcome!

We aim to elevate those voices invisible at Penn, namely members of our community including staff, as well as students, faculty, alumni, and other Penn-affiliates.
