March for Affordable Housing & Good Jobs
Start: Wednesday, August 20, 2014• 4:30 PM
Over the past 10 years, rents have increased at twice the rate of household incomes citywide. At the same time, the number of rent-regulated apartments has been steadily declining throughout the city.
Longtime residents are being pushed out of the City. Without a serious intervention, more and more New Yorkers will continue to be priced out of their neighborhoods as massive displacement sweeps through the City.
On August 20th, Real Affordability for All will join faith leaders, electeds and community members to fight for REAL AFFORDABLE HOUSING that New Yorkers can count on.
Together, we will fight to preserve real affordability in private developments and in public housing, and we will push hard to ensure that all new housing remains permanently affordable to people living in the neighborhoods where it will be built. With a growing affordability crisis and rising homelessness, Mayor de Blasio must deliver real affordability for our city.
Real Affordability for All, is the largest and most diverse coalition in New York City organizing to protect and create economically diverse communities in which real affordable housing is available across income levels and to the most vulnerable residents.
Join us before it is too late!
