PHAR Celebration – Charlottesville, VA

On November 14th Friday evening, the Public Housing Association of Residents honored graduates of the Resident Leader Internship Program, and helped celebrate 10 years of service.  The celebration was held at the Legal Aid and Justice Center on Preston Ave.  In attendance were graduates, their families, PHAR members and supporters.  It was a festive and impactful occasion as graduates took the stage to share their success stories.   Jason and I were there to document the festivities. 

 PHAR is a nationally-recognized non-profit organization, founded in 1998 to build grassroots leadership among public housing residents in Charlottesville, Virginia. PHAR’s mission is “to empower low-income residents to protect and improve our own communities through collective action.”
