Emergency Call to Action!

Mayor de Blasio is attacking working families and people of color time and again by pushing luxury development in the name of creating “affordable” housing. In the Lower East Side and Chinatown, he has blatantly rejected a community-led rezoning plan seven years in the making. He has rejected similar efforts for an alternative plan in East New York, Brooklyn and is set to do the same for Jerome Avenue in South Bronx and Flushing, Queens. Nearly 50 Community Boards rejected his mandatory citywide zoning, yet the Mayor responded by saying their opinions didn’t count. He has betrayed the trust of the people who voted for him, continuing Bloomberg’s legacy.

It is clear the Mayor’s solution to end the Tale of Two Cities is to destroy all of New York City. Each neighborhood is being stripped of its own unique, distinct character to make way for luxury high rises. There is another way to end the Tale of Two Cities, by building a multi-ethnic coalition of communities across New York City. We are calling on everyone to unite and say “No” to Mayor de Blasio’s developer-led rezonings, “Yes” to community-led rezoning!
