Protest will aim to highlight jobs and housing crisis in 518 neighborhoods
On Saturday, June 9th at 12 p.m. community residents from the South End, Arbor Hill, West Hill, Delaware Ave, Pine Hills, and New Scotland Ave neighborhoods will march together to call on the City to help rebuild Albany’s poorest neighborhoods and end the chronic disinvestment faced by low-income people and people of color.
Feeder marches will begin at 12 p.m. at the public library branches in Arbor Hill, the South End, and Delaware Avenue. The march routes will take participants to the Moses Statue at Washington Park. At 1 p.m., at the Moses Statue, there will be a speak-out and then a solidarity march to the Pine Hills Public Library to symbolize uniting the two different cities within Albany.
Speakers will highlight the need for a clear plan from City Government to address Albany’s jobs and housing crisis and systemic racial and economic inequalities present within the City.
