STREET SIGNS

An exhibit of photographs by Jim Alexander documenting the mass struggle for social and economic justice in the South.

The Georgia Peace Center is excited to host this exhibit during the peace season, January 14-April 7, 2012.  We plan to use the exhibit and the strong messages it communicates to continue building connections and bonds between the growing interest among working class communities in the Peace and Justice movement.

Foreclosure on Bank of America

Friday, November 11, 2011 - 4:00pm

Bank of America is taking people’s homes through illegal and fraudulent foreclosure proceedings. At its core, the mortgage crisis was created by big banks playing fast and loose with our housing- we’re here to take it back and foreclose on the very institutions that would put us out of our homes!  Rally for a moratorium to end all foreclosures.  Bank of America on Green Valley Road.
