Public Housing Projects Reunions

Hello! My name is Mari Cohen and I'm a reporter for the South Side Weekly, a newsmagazine that covers arts, politics, and culture on the South Side. I'm working on a piece about people who used to live in Chicago public housing projects and still attend reunions with their former neighbors. If you attend such reunions and would be willing to do a brief interview in the next few days about your reunions and why they're important to you, please let me know!
