Press Conference & Rally: Repairs, Reparations & Respect Now!

Please join us for a press conference and rally that is happening on:

Saturday September 26th at 4p at the red steps in Times Square

The press conference is spear-headed by tenants who live in NYCHA developments across the city – including Queensbridge and Ravenswood Houses in Queens, South Beach Houses in Staten Island, and Jefferson Houses and Holmes-Isaac Towers in Manhattan – who are fed up with the neglect by NYCHA and elected officials, and the resulting unsafe and uninhabitable living conditions that threaten their health and well-being.

Multiple tenants will be announcing that they will be or are already withholding their rent, and that they will continue to do so until the following demands are met: 

  1. Immediately allocate public funding to address repair needs in apts and buildings. 
  2. Put longer-term funding solutions in place to ensure NYCHA and public housing is truly preserved and publicly-funded indefinitely.
  3. Financially compensate residents for the pain and suffering incurred by unsafe and unhealthy housing and the toll it has taken on our physical and mental health. 
  4. Pursue avenues through which residents can assume collective control over their developments, such as resident management corporations.

We hope to see you there!
