"We have a human right to a home: We mourn the loss of homes at Penn Plaza Apartments but this is not the end: We call for action: We stand together for our lives!"
This Friday, March 31st, the last of the Penn Plaza Apartment residents will be evicted from their homes so that LG Realty can tear down affordable housing and replace it with luxury apartments and a new Whole Foods.
We must acknowledge the violence and trauma of gentrification and displacement in our communities, and to demand action to prevent future harm!
So, this Saturday April 1 at noon, we are calling for a Memorial March Against Gentrification.
We will visit various locations in East Liberty and hear from speakers who will share their experiences of this neighborhood and its complex history. We will call out all of those responsible for this injustice, ending at Penn Plaza apartments, where residents will come together to say that we are still alive and we will keep fighting.
If you would like to come to the march and need help with transportation please send an email firstname.lastname@example.org
