We couldn’t be happier with Wednesday’s push-back picnic: hundreds of folks from the Union Square community and beyond came out to celebrate the natural right of our public space.
There was indeed watermelon. And theater. And action. The tide is turning, thanks to you and your ongoing support to hold on to what we hold most dear.
