A vision for all:
Stable housing is a right!
Capitalistic forces make material conditions so that a place like The Bronx has over 60% of tenants paying more than 30 percent of income on rent. Having a stable home that is planned and controlled by the people will ensure that everyone can live in dignity.
Equity thru transit
Over half of Bronxites do not own a car. We rely on our public transportation system to get to our jobs, appointments, loved ones, and neighborhoods. Having rapid and reliable transit brings stability and reorienting our streets to the human scale means a better life for all.
Community keeps us safe
Much of what we call public safety focuses on enforcement and punitive punishment. The safest communities are the ones that invest in education, social services and community facilities. We need to close Rikers, not spend billions on new jails and instead spend that money on housing and services.
Nothing for us, without us
Our communities are under attack from development that doesn't represent our communities' goals and needs first. We must stand up for our communities and develop comprehensive plans that guarantee housing while providing jobs and creating a sense of community ownership.
Youth are our future
The youth are often the harshest recipients of the inequality caused by capitalism. We must provide them with opportunities and safety. Our communities also must respect their voices and empower them to take ownership of where they live.
Expand our Public Goods
Today's society places extreme pressure to grow productivity while making people pay for the services they need to live. We can make sure our society provides for us by expanding services the City provides to all.
Workers have the Power
Labor is entitled to all it creates. For too long, corporations and bosses have had control of how our workplaces are run and how profits are used. We can exert our collective power by strengthening and forming unions, co-ops, and protections.
Expand our rights
Everyone deserves the right to pursue happiness. When we are discriminated against based on the color of our skin, our immigration status, sexual and gender orientation, or our disabilities, we are not free.
