Important information about our visit to El Puente
When: Tuesday, September 19th at 4 PM
Where: 211 South 4th Street, Williamsburg, Brooklyn
We will meet approximately for 2 hours with the staff, & possibly some students of El Puente’s after school program, their Academy for Peace & Justice high school, and their middle school/community school.
Frances Lucerna (Executive Director), Clara Parker (Director of the Global Justice Institute), Wanda Vazquez (Principal of the Academy), and Fiorello Guevara (community school organizer) will present history & principles of El Puente & ideas for the collaboration.
We will meet at El Puente original site, a church building, at 211 South 4th Street (& Roebling avenue), a block from the Williamsburg Bridge. The Marcy Avenue subway station is the closest and it’s the first one when entering Brooklyn over the Williamsburg Bridge. Lines J,M, and B all go there.
