Lindsey Boylan, candidate for U.S. House of Representatives (NY-10), spoke at the Fight For NYCHA "Stop the War on the Poor" rally at Union Square Park. Ms. Boylan is challenging U.S. Rep. Jerrold Nadler in the Democratic Party primary in 2020. On Family Day at Fulton Houses last summer, U.S. Rep. Nadler claimed that it was "not a Federal issue" for him to get involved to save Fulton Houses, much less NYCHA.

Union Square Rally to build public support for a People’s Budget approach to fully-fund NYCHA

This is a City-wide rally to demonstrate support for a grassroots approach to fully-funding the New York City Hosing Authority, or NYCHA. Fight For NYCHA consulted with tenants and passed the People’s Budget for Housing, Justice, and Dignity during a Town Hall meeting at P.S. 33 in Chelsea on Sept. 18. The People’s Budget demonstrates that funding for public housing is reasonable, within reach, and some of these ideas are legislation-ready.

The immediate emergency is to take $10 billion that Mayor Bill de Blasio wants to use to build new jails and, instead, to redirect that money to public housing.
