This past summer, JFAC was hard at work knocking on doors, meeting with tenants’ groups and leaders from around the city, talking with residents at Astoria, Woodside and Queensbridge Houses’ Family days, providing access to legal counsel to get repairs done, and hosting our annual community barbecue. Our main foci have been NYCEDC’s plans for Sunnyside Yards and NextGeneration NYCHA’s plans to privatize and financialize public housing in NYC.
We are looking forward to continuing these conversations into the Fall. Join us for our next Community Meeting on Monday Sept 30th at 7p! Location TBD – Stay tuned!
In the meantime, SEE what we were up to this summer. You can also HEAR from some of the BBQ speakers. Recording and all images credited to Ray and Rita Normandeau.
