SUNDAY 2/7 1PM FREE Brickhouse Community Resource Center 24 third st Turners Falls, MA
screening "Neighbor by Neighbor: Mobilizing an Invisible Community in Lewiston, Maine." by Craig Saddlemire
In 2004, the city of Lewiston announced plans to flatten part of a downtown residential neighborhood to make way for a new four-lane boulevard -- an urban renewal scheme that would have displaced 850 people, most of them low income, from their homes. Saddlemire followed residents of the targeted area as they worked together to defeat those plans, and in turn developed and pursued their own vision of neighborhood improvement. This story of ordinary people becoming community organizers and agents of their own destiny is not to be missed. filmmaker will be present.
