Housing for the People!
A Mapping Project with Chinatown Tenants Union of CAAAV

The 'Housing for the People! Mapping Project’ will be a bilingual map that centers on place-keeping efforts in Chinatown and the Lower East Side. The map will be used as an organizing tool by members of Chinatown Tenants Union, in an effort to protect families in rent-stabilized homes and preserve the history of Chinatown. CTU members will help map places in Chinatown that are important to the community, under threat of erasure, or are spaces of activism and resilience. We hope the tenants will be able to use this map as a tool to mobilize other tenants to stop evictions, share information about tenant rights and fight gentrification.


With support from the Laundromat Project. Many thanks to the staff, volunteers, and members of the Chinatown Tenants Union of CAAAV Organizing Asian Communities.
