Good morning, my readers. I need your help this morning. As some of you know from following this blog, the privatization of public housing is happening with not much media attention. Tenants of public housing are being harassed by the incoming management and intimidated into signing new leases that strip many of their protections away.
To read more in-depth as to what is occurring, please see these two recent stories:
Private Management of Public Housing Led To Erosion of Tenants Rights’ Report Finds via The Gothamist
The Tenant Never Wins via Human Rights Watch
I am asking my readers to sign the Change.org petition to Stop The Privatization of NYCHA
We are appealing to New York Governor Kathy Hochul to keep public housing public.
There are currently 44 signatures. We need at least 100. Please share this/retweet this widely.
