Queens Anti-Gentrification Project
The Queens Anti-Gentrification Project is an all-volunteer effort to prevent gentrification and displacement in Woodside, Jackson Heights, Sunnyside, and all of Queens. We’re fighting to keep our neighborhoods affordable by organizing around issues of unaffordable real estate development, Business Improvement Districts (BIDs), zoning and other aspects of gentrification. We reject public-private partnerships such as the Jackson Heights-Corona and Woodside BIDs because they always benefit the developer over the neighborhood. We oppose all rezonings and projects that aim to attract real estate developers by increasing housing density and land value. We believe in tenants’ rights, and the right of neighborhoods to maintain continuity from one generation to the next. Fight with us!
