Our Coalition Grows and Lower East Side and Chinatown Mobilize for March to City Hall

The Coalition to Protect Chinatown and the Lower East Side is excited to welcome a new member, the Lower East Side Dwellers. We’re also excited to announce several new endorsers: Frank’s Chop Shop, Legal Services Staff Association, UAW Local 2320, Movement to Protect the People, S & J Grocery Inc., Take Back the Bronx, Trinity Lutheran Church of Sunset Park and UPROSE.

Hundreds of Latino, African American, Chinese and white residents, workers, students and business owners have taken hours out of their busy days to go door-to-door or stand on the street and distribute flyers, posters and petitions in opposition to discriminatory zoning, high rents and displacement, and in support of the Chinatown Working Group (CWG) rezoning plan that will protect the entire Chinatown and Lower East Side area in Community District 3.

The people of Chinatown and the LES are ready to come out in full force next week. Join us to demand that the city pass our rezoning plan and stop the displacement!
