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.

This will both cover ground we talked about in the other class, as well as build on what we talked about before. So if you missed the other one, come. If you went to the other class and enjoyed it, come back.

Home Ownership 4 Punx
Tuesday April 22nd 7pm
Big Yellow House
742 N. Branciforte Ave

with Wes & Katie

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.
