THE STORY:

Hello Friends!

We are very excited to reveal the Crowdrise video for the East Village's hottest new project: MoRUS, The Museum of Reclaimed Urban Space.

http://youtu.be/oXrXFdfwOHk

Time's Up! environmental organization is helping to launch this innovative, living history museum which will highlight how East Village community members and grassroots organizations stepped up and helped transform abandoned buildings and vacant lots into vibrant community spaces and thriving community gardens as well as used direct action to draw awareness toward diverse public space issues. Many of these grassroots, sustainable efforts and values spread to communities outside the neighborhood and can be seen today throughout the world.

Please check out this recent New York Times article to learn more about the new museum: http://www.nytimes.com/2012/03/05/nyregion/east-village-museum-shares-a-piece-of-activist-history.html?ref=nyregion

Time's Up! will lend some of its extensive archives to the museum; more information on Time's Up!'s archives can be found in this New York Times article:

We have a storefront location, tour guides and the community's approval, we just need your support to help open the museum to the public. With every donation we get closer and closer to preserving the neighborhood's vibrant history and opening the museum so please, please donate, spread the word through e-mail, Facebook and Twitter and know that it is deeply appreciated. All donations will be 100% tax deductible and every donation over $50 will receive a free membership to the museum.

Thank you so much for recently giving some of my students at CUNY Law School a tour of the museum (September 28). We are inspired by what you are doing. If you need legal advice/assistance, students in CUNY Law's community economic development clinic may be able to help. If so, please contact me at mcardle@mail.law.cuny.edu or at school (718) 340-4348. Hang in there, Andrea 5 years ago
