Talking Transition in NYC

 

 

Forty organizations signed on to urge Mayor-Elect Bill de Blasio to preserve affordable housing, take concrete steps to end homelessness, and build new housing in a responsible way. Our letter, Cure for a Tale of Two Citieswent to the De Blasio camp on November 6, 2013. 
     
Now for the next step: 

Groups across the city are getting together for 


"Talking Transition," a series of participatory events for advocates to shape the city's policies during the mayoral transition. Read about the project in today's NY Times.

On Monday, we'll discuss a Path to "Real" Affordable Housing.
