Mayor de Blasio’s current “Affordable Housing Plan,” including ZQA and MIH, is a developer-backed scam. It promotes luxury development that is pushing out our local businesses and services, displacing more people of color and working families, and eliminating more affordable units than it claims to create. Community Boards across the city are overwhelmingly opposed to it. The people of NYC are opposed to it, as evident in the public testimony from City Planning and City Council hearings. It is clear that Mayor de Blasio’s solution to end the Tale of Two Cities is to destroy our neighborhoods and create one New York for the rich.
In response to this attack, people from across the city are joining in a grassroots alliance to stop Mayor de Blasio’s developer-led zoning plans, and demand a “People First” plan for our communities that will protect us against displacement.
Join us this Thursday to tell Mayor de Blasio, 
if he displaces us, we will displace him!
