The Hood Report: May 001

The Hood Report: May 001
Our Queer Media lab participants and facilitators

What's good family! Happy Friday! We hope you are doing and feeling well.

Our community media program cohorts have been going strong for the last eight weeks. In our next newsletter edition, we will share their work and progress. Stay tuned!

Since the start of January, we have partnered with Maroon Theatre Project as a community partner in the Lorraine Hansberry Youth Playwriting Fellowship. The program aims to teach eight Newark youth about Black feminism, social justice, and how to express their stories and lived experiences through art to drive positive change. There are only a few spots left for our showcase next Friday.

We are officially a community partner with the Newark First Friday festival! Stop by our table tonight and say hey!

Visit our Mary Eliza Mahoney Health Center to get your COVID and flu vaccines. Protect yourself. Protect your city.
