Yesterday, NYHC hosted a Yes to Housing coalition rally at City Hall Park, loudly supporting the City of Yes for Housing Opportunity. We had great turnout and media coverage. Our coalition is 125 organizations and growing. We showed the strength of the coalition both in terms of numbers and the wide-range of community voices we’re bringing together.

We want to thank all of our partners that showed up and supported the cause. It is important that we demonstrate early on that there is robust support for fair housing, affordable housing and adding housing supply in every neighborhood. We have a lot of work left to do, but this was a great early step.

Before the event, Rachel Fee was interviewed on PIX11, which you can see here. And look for additional coverage of the event itself on Pix11, NY1, ABC7, Fox5, and The Real Deal. In addition, Shams DaBaron aka Da Homeless Hero aka Da Housing Hero published an Op-Ed in the New York Daily News.

But we still need more organizations and individuals to show support for more housing. If your organization has not yet joined our coalition, go to our website and sign up here.

If you are an individual and want to support City of Yes for Housing Opportunity, please also sign up at the website. We’ll be helping organize people to attend their community board meetings to say Yes to Housing.
