Stand up for real affordable housing →

New York City is at a breaking point. Nearly half of all residents are living near the poverty line. That’s why ALIGN is joining the Real Affordability for All coalition in demanding the City preserve and create truly affordability housing.

Join us Tuesday, August 20th as we march to demand real affordable housing for all New Yorkers.

Low-income New Yorkers are getting pushed out of their homes and out of their neighborhoods as rents skyrocket and new luxury development takes over our city.

The only way that New York can become a vibrant and sustainable city is by preserving and creating truly affordable housing, and by ensuring that development creates good local jobs. 

Affordability is not just a problem for some in Manhattan. In the modest income communities ravaged by Superstorm Sandy, we have seen countless families struggle to find temporary and permanent housing that they can afford. And in the development boom that has swept all boroughs, we have seen developers get huge tax breaks to create little to no affordable housing.

At least 50 percent of new housing should be affordable to residents across income levels and occupations. Anything less and it’s game over: New York City will only exist for the wealthy elite.

Earlier this year, Mayor de Blasio put out a plan for affordable housing that will create or maintain 200,000 units over the next ten years. More than $40 billion in public and private funds would be needed, and approximately 200,000 construction jobs and 7,000 permanent jobs would be created in the process.[1] This is an opportunity not only to increase affordable housing, but to create a cleaner environment through increasing the energy efficiency of new and existing buildings, and to reduce income inequality through creating long-term, family-sustaining jobs.

But to seize this opportunity, Mayor de Blasio needs to hear from us. Will you join us in sending a message that New Yorkers need real affordability for all?

In solidarity,

Maritza and the ALIGN team
