People Organized for Westside Renewal (POWER) Invite You To PUBLIC HUD (Housing & Urban Development) Meeting THURSDAY with HUD's Bessy Kong. from D.C.

[Pictured: Maybe these are some of the people waiting for the HUD vouchers they keep saying are on the way. Meanwhile, the banks have been bailed out, but more of Steve Perry's "street light people" seem to be taking to the streets in Marina Del Rey, not too far from Thursday's HUD meeting about the Westside.

Re: Upcoming HUD meeting with D.C. Asst of Policy Bessy "King" Kong

Join us to discuss the human right to housing with Assistant Secretary of Policy, Bessy Kong (she's KING!) from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Demand an end to demolition of public housing! Thursday, October 29, 2009: 6:00-7:30pm - Mar Vista Gardens Gymnasium, 4901 Marionwood Dr., Culver City, CA [ZD hears about 500 people expected. Need to be there with my "ZumaCAM!"]

  • In 1998 Congress began funding the HOPE VI program to demolish and “redevelop” public housing…
  • Around 80% of tenants who have been evicted from public housing have never come back to their communities.
  • There are currently about 1 million public housing units in use. These homes are making the difference between success and destruction for the millions of Americans who live in them.
  • We are working with Congressional leaders to pass real housing reform...
  • HUD can help us! We need a moratorium on the demolition and disposition of public housing!
