CVA responds to the City’s announcement of a “Housing Fair”
CVA went to the City Planning Commission (an advisory committee for City Council planning and development) to testify on our terrible experience with “engagement” by the City. We submitted an info packet that documents our struggle against displacement, resegregation, and gentrification from March – October 2017. Seven of us spoke powerfully and some gave written testimony. See the analysis and mobilization we have done all this year to stop displacement!
CVA replies to Mayor Duggan’s much-lauded 8 principles, highlighting where the rhetoric must stand up to reality to meet the needs of long-term Detroiters.
CVA went to the polls — to tell people no matter the election result, our task remains: Join the Movement to Protect Homeowners and Renters! Defeat Racist Displacement in Detroit!
Gentrification is a city-wide threat, so we must come together across Detroit to develop our analysis and make this fight for our homes! Let’s build the movement against racist displacement!
