CGA goes to Albany!

CGA goes to Albany

 

On March 13, we headed up to Albany with a crew of CGA tenants and members of the Southwest Brooklyn Tenant Union and Hopewell Care cooperative to advocate for affordable housing and community development programs. Members got to share their personal stories with Assistant Speaker Felix Ortiz, State Senator Velmanette Montgomery, and State Senator Daneil Squadron, making urgent issues come to life and demonstrating the importance of funding neighborhood-based programs. We also learned a lot from our representatives, from protecting Section 8 to pushing for inclusive development along the Brooklyn waterfront. Thank you to all who dedicated their day to advocating with us! We had a ton of fun.
