This event has passed Register

Event description

Join us for a thought-provoking Zoom Teach-In hosted by Save Section 9, a national advocacy group of residents and neighbors committed to preserving and revitalizing public housing in New York City and the nation. Delve into the rich history, pressing challenges, and future prospects of public housing as we explore its significance and the significant threats public housing faces today, including the full scale demolition of the Fulton and Elliott Chelsea Houses and the relocation/displacement of thousands of long term public housing residents.

This discussion aligns with More Art's 2024 year of programs on the themes of housing and immigration in New York City.
