Lisette Le of Right to the City at 1/9 DSA Activist Meeting

Lisette Le of Right to the City will be talking to us about her work at our January Activist meeting.

Right to the City is a national alliance of racial, economic and environmental justice organizations that emerged in 2007 as a unified response to gentrification and a call to halt the displacement of low-income people, people of color, marginalized LGBTQ communities, and youths of color from their historic urban neighborhoods.  Right to the City works on many issues, including: Land for People vs. Land for Speculation, Economic Justice, Indigenous Justice, Environmental Justice, Freedom from Police & State Harassment, Immigrant Justice, and Democracy and Participation.

Lisette Le
is Right to the City’s Boston Region Coordinator. Lisette joined Right to the City in November 2010.  Prior to joining Right to the City, she was the Civic Action Coordinator at the Chinese Progressive Association-Boston, where she was responsible for supporting CPA’s civic engagement and land use programming.   A 1.5th generation Vietnamese American, Lisette grew up in Akron, Ohio and studied American Studies at Tufts University, with a focus on Asian American studies. Her first engagement in activism was fighting for ethnic studies on campus.

Join the Budget for All Coalition for a Briefing on the Federal Budget

As homeless families pour into shelters, Yacht owners keep their tax breaks!

The Federal budget crisis

What’s happening? What’s at stake? Who’s winning? Who’s losing? And what can we do about it?

Over the next 3 months there will be major budget decisions being made in Washington that could seriously impact our country for years to come. First we have to understand what’s happening and then we have to act if we want to protect jobs, save vital public services, end tax breaks for the richest companies on earth, reduce the Pentagon budget and bring all our troops home from Afghanistan.

The Budget for All Campaign invites you
to this important educational update with

Jo Comerford, Director, National Priorities Project

The Sequester. Continuing Resolutions. Conference Committees. New deadlines. Threats of new shutdowns and defaults. Who can understand it all? Jo Comerford will help us make sense of it all so we can act effectively

Carolyn Federoff, Vice President, Mass. AFL-CIO; Vice President, AFGE Local 3258

Carolyn will outline for us the key decisions that will be made over the next few months and the impact these decisions will have on all of us. She will turn the present budget discussion on its head so we can see what a sensible budget would look like.
