Fight for NYCHA Operating Expenses

Despite a Settlement Agreement between HUD, the City of New York, NYCHA, and the U.S. Department of Justice, public housing residents continue to live in subhuman conditions, frequently being forced to take water for indoor plumbing from fire hydrants. This is unacceptable. But what is worse is what Mayor Bill de Blasio has planned for NYCHA.

Fight For NYCHA is building a City-wide social movement to preserve and expand public housing in New York City. We have been organising since January 2019 to oppose Mayor de Blasio's plan to put 62,000 NYCHA apartments into the hands of private landlords. Our work has garnered much media attention. 

We have announced plans to begin direct action to stop Mayor de Blasio's plans to expand RAD to NYCHA. By donating $5 right now, you would be helping us pay for our expenses.  Fight For NYCHA is unfunded, so we are a completely independent group.
Funds raised by this Go Fund Me campaign will support our crucial work. We need to raise money to pay for supplies and expenses, such as printing and copying costs, and other costs. A complete accounting of all crowd-funded donations and expenses are accounted for on OpenCollective  :
Our Fundraising Policy is publicly available :

Fight For NYCHA is an unincorporated collective of tenants, activists, artists, and advocates, who are supporting NYCHA tenants to self-determine the future of public housing in New York City. We oppose Mayor Bill de Blasio's plan to put 1/3 of NYCHA into the hands of private landlords. We reject Mayor de Blasio's proposal, because the money exists to save NYCHA. We just have to change our priorities.
