CAAAV: Take Back Chinatown Event

Take Back Chinatown! Community Education Event, 8/2

When: Sunday, August 2 from 2PM – 5PM

Where: Sara D. Roosevelt Park (Hester St. between Chrystie St. & Forsyth St.)


“Chinatown has lost 15,000 units of affordable housing in the last 10 years. This number is increasing every year, with thousands of units converted into luxury apartments, art galleries, and storefronts for artisanal coffee.

Join CAAAV on Sunday, August 2 for our Community Education Event in Sara D. Roosevelt Park on Hester Street. We will engage the community on efforts to take back Chinatown, to make affordable housing truly affordable. Activities include a community speak-out from the residents themselves, an interactive map of Chinatown, trivia on Chinatown’s history of activism, and a gentrification tour!”take back chinatown community education event 7.31.15
