Right to the City: New York City Policy Platform

Sep 02, 2009
  • Description

To address the gaps in PlaNYC and to create a set of economic development principles rooted in community needs, RTTC-NYC developed this citywide, grassroots policy platform. This platform unites the demands of the RTTC-NYC member groups related to community development, gentrification and displacement. The goal of the platform is to help build the power of low-income people of color in urban areas and to create urban policy that is central to the needs of low-income people. It is the result of an in-depth, collaborative, and participatory process, which included all the RTTC-NYC member-based organizations.
