Activist group Neighborhoods Organizing For Change is homeless for the moment but still active. A fire destroyed the NOC office and several other buildings on Wednesday morning at 913 West Broadway in Minneapolis.

None of NOC’s staff were harmed in the fire, but several people were taken to Hennepin County Medical Center.

A few hours later NOC organizers were busy participating in a day-long protest for higher pay for fast food workers.

“NOC is more than a building. We’re a movement,” said organizer Anthony Newby.

NOC has launched a fundraiser to help the residents who were injured or displaced by the fire.
