Based on past segments about the Privatization of NYCHA, on VOICES of East New York with Nikki Lucas, it has become crucial that a true Coalition to #SaveNYCHA had to be formed to stop the city from handing over its housing portfolio to private developers.
Kristen Hackett of the Justice for All Coalition has been a guest multiple times on VOICES of East New York with Nikki Lucas, to explain in detail how the RAD Program is absolutely a privatization plan and the Blueprint Plan is a Dishonest Attempt To Hand Over Reigns To Financial Elite Disguised As A Public Trust.
This Sunday December 20 @9am the discussion on VOICES of East New York with Nikki Lucas will focus on the Coalition to #SaveNYCHA and the importance for it to be completely independent of current Council and Assembly members who sat around for the past 15 years while the bad deed was being done. The tenants were left in the dark until EastNewYork.com informed the community about the privatization, along with Nikki Lucas discussing it on VOICES of East New York. And then East New York News exposed the elected officials as they scurried in an attempt to defend their non-actions, which they are still trying to do. There is no defense for being silent for 15 years while developers were working to get their hands on NYC’s real estate portfolio.
The community still needs to be educated on what this all means and how it will impact not only the tenants in NYCHA, but tenants throughout East New York. If you live in East New York you already know that Storage facilities have opened up in every section of the neighborhood and hotel shelters are opening at a rapid pace. The local elected officials have not tried to stop storage facilities from opening nor have they tried to stop hotel shelters from popping up all over East New York. The only reason not to fight against storage facilities and hotel shelters is the fact that the elected officials must have already known that tenants in East New York were going to be displaced and they would need a place to store their belongings while they are moved to shelters.
Join this week’s discussion on VOICES of East New York with Nikki Lucas to find out how you can help to stop the privatization of NYCHA, while still working on a solution to have NYCHA developments completely renovated without raising rents or displacing current tenants who lived in NCYHA through the hard times. In the meantime Sign the Petition to #SaveNYCHA
