This Saturday, please join us for a most unlikely free skool class: A workshop on the possibilities of Home Ownership for punk kids, co-op living communitarians, renters, hippie families, etc. This is an attempt to spark a movement of community-owned homes and to ensure that all the best people don't flea the outrageous rents in this beautiful but expensive area.

Home Ownership 4 Punx

Straight up: If you pay rent, you can afford a house, even in this outrageously expensive area. Let's talk about buying a house: what to look for, loans, equity, down payments, financial bullshit. More importantly, let's talk about alternatives to the fucked-up system of personal homeownership: land trusts, collectives, and creating a network of community-owned homes. Let's get together and create a vision of the strong, rooted community we want to see.

Requirements: We have complicated feelings about ownership, trying to balance our abhorrence of participating in the economy with living in the world we have now. So bring those feelings.
