Queens Borough Meeting Tonight

Queens Borough Meeting details
Wednesday, April 25 - Tonight!
Queens Borough Hall in Room 213, 120-55 Queens Boulevard in Kew Gardens
The meeting will be in Spanish and in English

Tenants, affordable housing advocates, clergy, Queens Borough President Helen M. Marshall, Senator Toby Ann Stavisky, Assemblyman Jose Peralta and Councilman Joseph Addabbo are meeting tonight as part of the Queens Affordable Housing Borough Meeting. We'll talk about increasing rents and the decreasing number of available affordable apartments and discuss ways to preserve affordable housing in New York by changing unfair rent regulation laws.

Tonight's Queens Borough Meeting, last week's Bronx Borough Meeting, and the three upcoming Borough Meetings are all leading up to the May 23rd "Hands Around Stuy-Town" rally, where thousands of New Yorkers will demand protections for the City's rapidly dwindling supply of affordable housing.

Tonight's Borough Meeting is being coordinated by the Working Families Party, ACORN, Queens Congregations United for Action, Tenants & Neighbors, Queens Community House and QLOUT. For more information contact Theo Moore from the Working Families Party at (718) 222-3796 x209 or by email
