I cannot emphasize enough how many resources the Triangle is lacking. One of those resources is a park. The Opa-locka Community Development Corporation (OLCDC) is determined to bring change to the urban environment; in the meantime, they are hosting a series of Pop-up Parks on a vacant lot at the corner of Washington and James Street on Saturday, March 16. Our team will participate in the event by building seven Micro-Enterprise structures out of cardboard for the children of the neighborhood. Christian developed a flyer to announce the event and I began to research how graffiti artists apply their decals to buildings. With the help of Jennifer and Dean (a friend and law student at University of Miami), we papered the façade of 14805 Johnson Street within a matter of hours.
