Gowanus Neighborhood Coalition for Justice Meeting on NYCHA

February 27, 2019 6:00am

NYCHA has garnered news over the last few months for a series of scandals from lack of heat and hot water, to unreported lead paint, to failures in remediating mold in apartments. But how did we get there and how do we fight to ensure safe and healthy conditions for NYCHA residents across the city? As a part of the Gowanus neighborhood rezoning process facilitated by the Department of City Planning (DCP) and Council Members Brad Lander and Stephen Levin, the Gowanus Neighborhood Coalition for Justice (GNCJ) is demanding substantial allocation of funding to meet long outstanding capital needs of local public housing communities before significant real estate development begins. Join us on February 27th to learn more about the coalition’s demands and how you can get more involved, including our efforts to reopen Gowanus Houses Community Center. Please RSVP to Nashly at ntorresparedes@fifthave.org or (718) 237-2017 x171

Location: Fifth Avenue Committee 621 Degraw Street Brooklyn, NY 11217

Date: Wednesday, February 27, 2019 from 6:00-8:00 p.m.
