Aug 23, 2019 - Expropriate 214-230 Sherbourne

When: Friday August 23rd, 8:30pm
Where: 230 Sherbourne St.
Free event with a meal, child-friendly, wheelchair access.

OCAP is fighting to stop the sale of 214-230 Sherbourne - a series of 7 vacant properties at the southwest corner of Dundas and Sherbourne - to condo developers. Instead, we've proposed a plan that would build between 150 to 260 units of public-owned rent-geared-to-income housing on that land. The fight won't be easy, but we can take inspiration from battles of the past and present.

So join us for an outdoor summer movie screening, complete with dinner and popcorn, at the site as we feature short films that profile resistance that stopped evictions and forced the City to build public housing.
