Rev. David K. Brawley and EBS-Metro IAF says Mayor de Blasio should resign if he can't fix issues at NYCHA...

On Wednesday, June 12 at Gracie Mansion the co-chair of EBC-Metro IAF, Rev. David K. Brawley will be holding an assembly calling for Mayor De Blasio to restore the $500 million promised for NYCHA developments last year and add $500 million more, and make the affordable housing crisis a priority--or resign as mayor.

June 12th is the one year anniversary of the original $500 million promise.

This past summer, Rev. Brawley put an assembly together to implement the next steps on perpetuating the $500 million deal he and his organization made with Mayor Bill de Blasio & Speaker Corey Johnson to build thousands of affordable apartments for seniors to ensure they get built. There was also supposed to be discussion about how to guarantee the $2.2 billion agreement between the U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman & Mayor de Blasio to repair existing NYCHA units.

As of today there has been no movement on any of the promised work. So, Rev. Brawley the co-chair of EBC-Metro IAF has set up this rally to demand accountability.
