Why Come to Cleary Square on Saturday October 31, 2009
Join your neighbors, the Mass Alliance of HUD Tenants, other community groups, elected officials, city candidates, friends and supporters to speak out to save at-risk housing.
Nationally more than 360,000 HUD subsidized apartments have been lost due to owner decisions to convert to market rents.
In Hyde Park, High Point Village has been converted to "Stonybrook Commons" and tenants at Georgetowne, Blake Estates and Cummins Towers face displacement and homelessness as current contracts expire due to landlord greed.
LET'S TELL OUR ELECTED OFFICIALS AND CITY CANDIDATES:
Pass the Boston Home Rule Petition to Save Affordable Housing to protect low income tenants in expiring use buildings!
Demand Congress adopt a National Right to Purchase to Save Our Homes.
Ratify the Right to Housing Treaty!
