It's not just the rent that's too damn high in New York - it's the number of evictions and people who find themselves without a home. Want to do something about it? We thought so!
Please join the Empire State Progressives for an evening focused on fighting for a more equitable New York through improved affordable housing policies. We'll be joined by NY City Council Member Ritchie Torres (http://council.nyc.gov/district-15/), as well as a representative from New York Communities for Change (http://nycommunities.org/).
Learn more about tenants’ rights and how we can help decrease the astronomical eviction rate in our city, which has a direct correlation to the number of New Yorkers who find themselves homeless each night.
We'll start the evening off with a primer on State & City Government, followed by a session on Affordable Housing Policy 101.
Bonus: food and drinks are available for purchase in the main hall of Berg'n. You'll find us hanging in the back room. Looking forward to seeing you there!
