Community Meeting on NYCHA Greening Plans!

To all South Bronx neighbors, allies and friends engaged in struggles
to improve public services, public housing, jobs & economic justice,
environmental & food justice and general swagger:
Mothers on the Move is putting you on BLAST!
We have a meeting Thursday, Oct 14 with NYC Housing Authority
Coordinator Margarita Lopez, to hear NYCHA's plans
for "greening" public housing and to present some of our
recommendations for creating a pilot Green Jobs program in public

MOM leaders have put a lot of work into the research phase of this
campaign, as we get ready to release a report in the coming months
detailing resident perspectives on existing job training programs
and offering some policy solutions to the intersecting environmental,
housing and unemployment crises facing our communities.
This meeting will help us clearly understand NYCHA's long term
greening plans, and hone our campaign strategy moving into 2011.
We hope you can join us!!
WHEN: Thursday, Oct 14 @ 6pm
WHERE: Betances Community Center, 547 E. 146th St, at St. Ann's Ave
