About – Fight For NYCHA
Fight For NYCHA is a collective of tenants, activists, artists, and advocates, who oppose the announcement by Mayor Bill de Blasio (D-New York City) to sell one-third of NYCHA to private real estate interests. The proposed sale would transfer 62,000 public housing apartments, open spaces between buildings, and air rights to certain participants in the real estate industry. The plans for the sale were reaffirmed when Mayor de Blasio settled a Federal investigation into the physical condition standards of public housing.
Fight For NYCHA rejects Mayor de Blasio’s proposed sale, because the money exists to save NYCHA without having to resort to selling public housing.
We just have to change our priorities.
