Thanks to our many friends AREA appears in classrooms, at people’s summits, panel discussions, events, and sometimes in the most unlikely places. AREA has reached beyond Chicago, into the South Suburbs thanks to Anthony Rayson and into Northwest Indiana thanks to the Central District Organizing Project in Gary, the Remarkable Book Shop in Merrillville, and the Purdue Calumet Social Justice Club in Hammond.
