International Workers’ Day Solidarity Share Fair

May 1, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm

International Workers' Day Solidarity Share FairFor its third installment, the Neighborhood Anarchist Collective will be hosting the new monthly free market as an International Workers’ Day Solidarity Share Fair for May Day at First Christian Church! This free market is a project organized by members of NAC in the hopes of cultivating ways for neighbors to help each other meet basic needs. The fair will be providing free resources and services from local organizations and community groups to unhoused and working class members of the community. There will also be food, live music, games, and a chance to know other Eugene organizations and folks in the community – and it’s all free! Childcare will also be provided!

This Share Fair is co-sponsored by Carry It Forward, the Communist Labor Party of Eugene, Lane Community Defense Network, and will be in collaboration with ESSN’s May Day event! ESSN will be at the downtown park blocks on 8th Ave and Oak St, providing food, music, and a chance for the working class people of Lane County to have their voices heard and celebrate the sacrifices and accomplishments of the working class.

We are also still accepting donations! If you or your group/business/organization/charity would like to provide goods or services at this event, please contact resources@neighborhoodanarchists.org to get connected.
