NYCHA Real Talk

With the support of the Oak Foundation, TakeRoot continues to deepen work with New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) residents responding to the Authority’s plans to transfer control of existing public housing to private developers and allow private housing to be built on NYCHA campuses, including launching the NYCHA Real Talk series in Fall 2021.

The NYCHA Real Talk series (#NYCHARealTalk) was created by the Center for Urban Pedagogy, Good Old Lower East Side (GOLES), WE ACT and TakeRoot Justice/Community Development Project, Inc.

Materials in English are linked below. Materials will be available in Spanish and Simplified Chinese in Fall 2021.

In Fall 2021, GOLES, WE ACT and TakeRoot will partner to train a paid cohort of NYCHA residents on these materials so they can lead discussions with their neighbors.
