On January 16th, 100 WSNA members came together to celebrate our successes in ’07 and gear up for exciting work in 2008.
In 2007, the West Side Neighborhood Alliance:
- Grew our grassroots organization to more than 500 members.
- Led the fight against illegal hotels, winning a City Council hearing on Intro 534.
- Brought 300 Spanish-speaking West Siders together for our Fiesta Comunitaria.
- Mobilized West Siders for the largest tenants’ rights demonstration in NYC in a decade.
- Collected hundreds of signatures for improved air quality and public transit.
- Advocated for affordable housing, open space and reasonable density on the West Side Rail Yards.
- Worked with Community Board 4 to launch a neighborhood-friendly rezoning of 11th Ave.
- And more! It was quite a year and we hope you will join us in making change in ’08!
