I attended the meeting and found it very helpful.

This is a unity campaign.

Although I am a rent regulated (stabilized) tenant that understands that we are losing thousands of affordable units to Vacancy Decontrol, I realized that all affordable housing programs are in serious trouble. I heard from each segment, Section 8, Public Housing, Mitchell-Lama, and Rent Regulated, horror stories of constantly diminishing housing options for everyday New Yorkers. I saw in the room a true cross section of NY's working class and wondered where will we all go if we don't stop this now? But I also felt empowered and uplifted by the unity in the room. Let's stick together and let Albany know we are united and we will fight for our homes.
