Join us for an evening of celebration and engagement at the first-ever “Re-Up” Meet-Up! At this event, we’ll be bringing together the different segments of the “Re-Up” that are all invested in real estate in the Englewood community. We welcome Homeowners, Buy the Block participants, “Re-Up” Working Group members, R.A.G.E members, as well as developers, real estate agents, contractors, mortgage lenders, bank professionals and research institutions to bring them together for an evening of information, engagement, networking and vibes.

The “Re-Up” program has worked for over a year to strengthen the economic and social fabric of the Englewood community, and this event is the culmination of that effort. RSVP today at https://bit.ly/reupmeetup to join us for what is sure to be an evening to remember in Englewood.

Given the recent events at Moran Park we know it’s been a rough few days for our community, and we hope that everyone feels safe, loved, and supported during this time.

We also wanted to let you know that despite recent events, Englewood is still thriving! There are so many wonderful things happening in our community—so many people are working hard to hold space and create safe spaces for Englewood residents to gather, connect, and enjoy themselves in the community.

This weekend is no exception: there are several community events happening all over Englewood, from back-to-school parties to movie screenings in the park. We hope you’ll check out some of these events and make plans with your friends or family members this weekend to experience some of the good in Englewood!
