Join us in the Chicago release of "Home in Time of Displacement", an anthology by Undocumented Writers at the Chicago Freedom School! We hope to share our anthology to open up a space for stories, ideas, and experiences of home and displacement, whatever that may mean to you. All are welcome and we encourage a space of listening and affirming each person's unique journey. 

Light refreshments will be provided as well as bus cards for youth. We will be asking for donations to the Chicago Freedom School. Any amount you are able to contribute is important and will give back to sustaining youth programming.

There is an elevator at the back entrance on S. Holden Court (Please note: The front entrance on S. State Street is not wheelchair accessible). CTA stop: (Red Line) Harrison.

A Message from CultureStrike Executive Director Sham-e-Ali Nayeem

"It is through art and culture that we are able to shift our collective consciousness and transform this grim political climate we find ourselves in. There is a significant cost our communities pay when we are not the ones uplifting our own truths. We have a tremendous opportunity to strengthen our creative alliances and shift cultural narratives that harm us. I invite us all to imagine the kind of world we wish to see and assert the safety and dignity of our communities." Donate Now!
