Peoplestown Rally Against Displacement!
As the eye of the city's development becomes fixated on the Peoplesrtown community we see more and more development deals both big and small that threaten to displace longterm residents from the communities they love and helped build.
On March 19th we plan to fill the yards of residents that are fighting to stay in their homes despite threats from the city. Our camapign has already saved one of those homes from destruction but we residents are calling on you to have their backs!
We eill be meeting at Tanya Washington's yard at 4pm for a rally against displacement followed by a march around the block wih some special guests.
Stick around afterwards for food and music!!
