Demonstrators call for a healthy housing bill

Despite increased awareness of how environmental issues intersect with race and poverty, many people ignore some of the greatest environmental hazards such as mold, mildew, asbestos, and lead because they occur in the home rather than outdoors. As covered in City Limits, NYLPI and MFY Legal Services have partnered to launch the Campaign for Better Bronx Housing. We aim to engage, empower, and educate Bronx residents by increasing awareness of their housing rights. We held our first workshop of the campaign on September 22, 2016 at the Bronx Public Library.
