On Thursday, August 15th, the United Workers held a community BBQ at James McHenry Recreation Center.  After the city's recent preliminary approval of the Harbor Point TIF on Monday, August 12, the group's youth-led Human Rights Committee wanted to celebrate fair development and demonstrate the need to work together and continue to organize.  The local talent featured the New Edition Marching Band, which is a community group that uses the Recreation Center as it's practice space. All photos were taken by Casey McKeel.
