We’re Moving!

Big news for CBWP: Unfortunately, after years of dedicated and inspiring work, Beyondmedia Education is closing its doors due to a lack of funding.  CBWP is hunting for a new fiscal sponsor, and we’ve found a new home– we’re just sorting out the details.
We are going to be in the space on Sunday 1/8 and Sunday 1/15, but we’re not answering letters- we’re packing up our inventory and disassembling our shelves.
If you are able to help, we need small and medium sturdy cardboard boxes, plastic bins (with or without lids), and people who are handy with powerdrills.
We need to be out of 4001 N Ravenswood by the end of January.
Sometime in the next couple of weeks, we’ll also need people with cars and/or driving ability to help us move the project to its new home.
We are thrilled to let you know that the Chicago Women’s Health Center is going to rent us space! We’ll be located at 3435 N Sheffield (Sheffield and Clark and Newport), just between the Belmont and Addison El stops. We are very excited to be building a partnership with this awesome organization, and it sounds . If you’re not familiar with their work, you can check them out here: http://www.chicagowomenshealthcenter.org/
