Help us make a box-city demonstration for Forest Park

UNH families should be THRIVING not merely SURVIVING!

Join us this Saturday, as a Friend of Forest Park, to help create a box-city demonstration called, “The Future of Family Housing at UNH” that will include boxes decorated as dilapidated houses to signify the continual neglect and oppression that the Forest Park community is subject to and the stark reality that family housing is being phased out of the University altogether.

The demonstration willl be displayed and attended on T-Hall lawn all day on Wednesday May 2nd, in which we as the UNH student community will demand that UNH Adminstrators honor their commitment to provide an “inclusive and welcoming place to study, work and live for all persons” (UNH Diversity Strategic Plan), by lowering the rents for student families so they can afford food, clothing, and other basic necessities!

But we need your help in order to make this demonstration happen! Meet us at the Diversity Support Coalition Office (first floor on the MUB, next to the WUNH radio station) from 10am-2pm this Saturday, April 28th. Bring markers, paints, cardboard boxes (check into stores to collect em’ before they’re recycled), and any other artsy crafts or ideas you can muster up such as displays or street theatre.

Power to the Peaceful!
