Because chain link represents all that is wrong in this world.
A fence discourages communication and collaboration.
A fence marks private property and silently says "my mom never taught me how to share."
A fence symbolizes apathy towards community and public spaces, drawing a line of responsibility at the end of one's lawn.
Each time we take down a fence, we open up a new space.
Get involved! Volunteer to help De-Fence! Encourage your neighbors to take down their chain link!
If you have a fence you'd like to have removed or you would like to participate in removal, please e-mail me.

Inspiration for this project was provided by a similar project in a Toronto neighborhood.
