Stop the Goldman Sachs Housing Plan!

Mayor Bill de Blasio, New York City

Stop

At this moment, New York City is facing a devastating housing crisis that has left over 60,000 people homeless. These families come from every corner of the City, but they're concentrated in longtime low- and moderate-income communities of color.

Landlords and bankers are profiting from this rapid displacement and rising rents — from Bushwick to the South Bronx. But the housing crisis begins with City Hall and its Wall Street housing agenda.

Deputy Mayor Alicia Glen, a former Goldman Sachs executive, drives the housing agenda in City Hall. While supposedly serving the City, she has doled out $1 billion to her favored developer partners from Goldman Sachs.

Our rarest public resource — our land — is being auctioned off for private profit while local residents are priced out and landing in homeless shelters.

Giving away public land to private developers that profit from increasing homelessness is not a national model of progressive governance.

If we want New York City to continue being the greatest city in the world, then the Mayor must stop the Goldman Sachs housing agenda and build deeply affordable housing for New York City’s most vulnerable.
