S.O.S. November Events

Fall Fish Fry: On Friday, November 22nd, S.O.S. held its annual Fish Fry in the Fall. Over 40 community members came out to the corner of Albany Ave. and St. Marks Ave. to enjoy fish sandwiches and good company.



Attorneys from the Legal Aid Society joined the S.O.S. team to answer questions and provide legal information to residents.


Barbershop Discussion: On Wednesday, November 27th, S.O.S. held a discussion event at Unique Unisex studio, a local barbershop. The event centered around the question: "What would your ideal community look like?" 5 participants were in attendance, and shared their thoughts about what could make their community better. Some ideas that came up were a more jobs and a more diverse community where people from different cultures could communicate better.



S.O.S. C.A.N. Rollerskating: On Saturday, November 30th, the S.O.S. Clergy Action Network (C.A.N.) hosted an outing for 20 young people at a rollerskating rink in Brooklyn. The event was hosted in response the event Power Filled Me, where an audience of adults listened to the concerns of young people. One of the issues that came up during Power Filled Me was the lack of community spaces where young people could have fun. The rollerskating event was a chance to bring together young people, some of whom had never skated before, for an activity with the community. The event was so successful that S.O.S. C.A.N. will be hosting another outing in the near future.
