“I was born and raised here, and the fact that I went to college, I’m a working professional, and I can’t come back to my own community and buy a house, is a very big problem.”
In this week’s episode, we look at the struggle for housing here in Brooklyn. We speak with Jean Stevens, Esq., a housing attorney at Brooklyn Legal Services Corporation A, about affordable housing and tenant associations. Later on in the episode, we hear from neighborhood residents about what brought them to the Brooklyn Community Forum on Anti-Gentrification and Displacement held at the Brooklyn Museum.
Music: “Mercurial Vision” and “Cat’s Eye” by Blue Dot Sessions, “Marimba Motivation” by Dave Depper.
