Gentrification is hitting Boston hard, perhaps harder than foreclosures themselves have hit residents. In recognition of this fact, the Boston #Right2Remain 2015 Assembly is a collective effort to highlight and support the inner-connections of our neighborhood Stabilization Fights and build power and support for passing Just Cause Eviction.
Show Boston We Have the #Right2Remain, and We Mean Business!
Join hundreds of renters, home-owners, low-income residents, people of color and immigrants at the Boston #Right2Remain Coalition’s 2015 Assembly – Grassroots Power to Remain, Reclaim, Rebuild Boston on:
Saturday, October 3, 2015
Assembly: 9:30 am-1 pm
Location: Vietnamese American Community Center (VACC)
42 Charles St, Dorchester (near the Fields Corner stop on the Red Line)
Collective Action: 1-2 pm
Location: Gather at the Fields Corner T stop on the Red Line, at the Charles St. exit
Hundreds will gather and direct testimony about the citywide displacement crisis toward city council candidates, who will be invited to attend the morning plenary. Grassroots activists will also plan strategies and tactics for passing Just Cause Eviction, breaking down by city council district, and will share a variety of organizing approaches to the displacement crisis through interactive and cultural activities. Topics will include inclusionary development policy, community land trusts and community control of public land, creation of neighborhood stabilization zones, and struggles for local hiring and community benefit standards.
Make sure your voice is heard and our community is strong on critical issues of housing, zoning, jobs, land and transit policies that our communities are actively fighting for. Advance the campaign for a #JustCauseEviction law, and build shared power among Boston’s communities to stand united for our #Right2Remain and influence Boston’s 2015 Municipal Elections.
