What would New York City be like if everyone had...
Housing that was safe and affordable?
Public space that was truly public?
Local governance that was representative and powerful?
Jobs that were good and available?
We know, its hard to imagine.
But that's why the Right to the City Alliance brought together dozens of
community groups from throughout the five boroughs to visualize a
better City and flesh out demands and build a movement to make it
happen. On Thursday, February 11th, the Alliance presented the Right to the City
platform, cultivated from months of radically democratic thinking. New
York City has been the playground of the wealthy for far too long --
its time for the people to take back the power!
