MARCH TO SAVE OUR HEALTH CARE and oppose GHI-HIP from converting to a for-profit company, jeopardizing the healthcare of 4 million policy holders, including 500,000 NYC workers (93% of the workforce) & retirees. Mainstream politicians & union leaders support the change, hoping to benefit from the nearly $3 billion windfall profits of such a sale.

Last chance for direct community input on the rezoning of the EV/LES.

The community board has not yet withdrawn support for out-of-scale development on Chrystie Street. 80% (or more) of that development will be luxury.

DCP has refused to protect the Bowery and Chinatown.

Tell DCP not to develop Chinatown into another luxury hotel district.

Join us to say "no" to overdevelopment in the LES.
