The upcoming 2021 City Council elections hold huge promise for our city. We can elect a City Council who can end the displacement of tenants and closure of small businesses by passing community based rezoning plans. They can re-direct funds to our schools, arts, hospitals, and social services instead of the NYPD. They can create a comprehensive climate plan that supports green transit, protects Lower Manhattan from future flooding, and keep our air clean.
Art Against Displacement is excited to endorse
Chris Marte for City Council District 1 in Lower Manhattan!

He supports the Chinatown Working Group Plan to defend the last working-class immigrant neighborhoods in Manhattan. He has organized neighbors against the building of a new skyscraper jail in Lower Manhattan and has committed to defunding the NYPD.
