Reclaim Our Space is a public celebration of the resistance of Queer youth and their allies to the gentrification, harassment, and race and
gender-based profiling and brutality that have become commonplace under the pretense of "cleaning up" the West Village. The overall goal of this event is to build momentum around these issues and to increase public awareness of the criminalization of marginalized people in a neighborhood that has long been a hub of their communities. Reclaim Our Space will serve as a spectacular catalyst for creating alliances with others committed to resisting these economic and political attacks. The Festival will begin in Sheridan Square Park at 1p.m with an intergenerational rally and open mic speak-out. A march will lead us the to the Christopher Street Pier, where the festival will culminate with a Block Party: you can expect food, music, dancing, spoken word, spades, dominoes, double dutch, and plenty more!
