Las Calles Son Del Pueblo! (The Streets Belong To The People!)



In the summer of 2018 the PODER! and CPA (Chinese Progressive Association) Summer youth collaboration known as Common Roots organized a rally opposing the reconfiguration of a 100% affordable housing development that would have added a large 100% market rate housing development in a predominantly working poor-class, immigrant, neighborhood. A month after the demonstration, which contributed to an ongoing community campaign for accountability for the reconfiguration, the market rate development fell through.
