Ask a Homeless Person: What Would a REAL Rental Subsidy Look Like?

Last week, we asked members of our Housing Campaign what a real rental subsidy might look like. Since Mayor Bloomberg systematically destroyed every single subsidy and support to help homeless people get out of shelter and off the street, homeless people are hopeful that the new administration will recognize what we've been saying for a decade and a half - that homeless people need housing, not shelters! 

Here's some of what our members had to say, about what a real rental subsidy should look like.

Ask a Homeless Person: What do you think about the "Broken Windows" theory of policing?

This week, we asked members of our Civil Rights Committee what they thought of the "Broken Windows" theory of policing. Here's what some of them had to say:
 

It is a subversion of Terry v. Ohio and extends police power beyond "reasonable suspicion and probable cause." - Jean Rice

What does the new mayor need to know about policing?

Perspectives from PTH Civil Rights members, answering the question "What does the new mayor need to know about policing?"
 
The mayor needs to realize the people of today in our city we are not lying low and allow NYPD to use abuse tactics and get away with them. His NYPD will be accountable for their acts of brutality and I hope we are able to get legislation that will state every time the NYPD are sued it come out their salary.

Community Land Trust Fighting to Save the Country's Oldest Black Bookstore!!

We've been talking a lot about how community land trusts can create housing for all New Yorkers, including homeless folks, and stop displacement and gentrification and promote sustainable community development. Our communities are under attack, and the CLT model is one important way to fight back and hold on to the things that make our neighborhoods great.
