The news broke this week that the venerable Mother Cabrini High School would be closing its doors after 115 years in the neighborhood. Hold on – not so fast – The Cabrini Movement has begun. Started within days of the news of the impending closure, current students, teachers, alumni and elected officials have banded together to change the fate of the neighborhood institution. The Cabrini Movement has launched a grassroots and social media campaign to save the school. Their Facebook group page dedicated to the worthy cause already has over 3,000 members. Better yet, their Indiegogo campaign raised almost 25K in 2 days.
