The people of New York City are in the fight of our lives. Bloomberg and his Housing Authority want to build luxury towers on the parks and playgrounds of Lower East Side and Harlem public housing projects. On July 24th, public housing residents will take over the NYCHA Draft Annual Plan hearing to demand that NYCHA immediately terminate the plan.

Could you turn out to a two-hour door-knocking session in the affected developments? Volunteers will be joining the members and staff of Good Old Lower East Side [GOLES] in this effort. It only takes 2 hours — do it once, or do it every day, Monday–Friday until our July 24th demonstration. See the calendar and the flyer below for more information!

To join door-knocking, write GOLES public housing organizer Julian Morales [julian@goles.org] or me [joel.feingold@gmail.com] to RSVP.

You can also just show up; be sure to call GOLES at 212-358-1231 to check the location, but most days we’ll meet at GOLES: 169 Ave. B between E. 10th and E. 11th Street.

Our outreach schedule is as follows:

Week of Monday, July 15–Friday, July 19 // Everyday at 4pm
Sunday, July 21–Tuesday, July 23 // Final blitz. Hours TBA.

If you can’t make door-knocking but would like to support this work, you can donate to GOLES here.

The people of New York City will not be defeated!
