Ward 3 Housing Justice
As residents of Ward 3 committed to housing and racial justice, we believe that:
Everyone deserves an opportunity to live in Ward 3 including people who work here -- construction workers, barbers, teaching assistants, home health aides, bus drivers, lab technicians, police and fire dispatchers -- and those who live on fixed incomes or with disabilities.
Profit-driven development alone will produce very little affordable housing; substantial public investment is required.
New models of affordable housing can be well-planned and well-designed to achieve racial equity, create vibrant community life and enhance neighborhood character.
Together we can think big and take bold action to create affordable homes where people can grow and thrive
