Founded in 1986 as the Committee Against Anti-Asian Violence, CAAAV works to build grassroots community power across diverse poor and working class Asian immigrant and refugee communities in New York City.
We would love your support as we launch our public awareness campaign of
the effects of zoning on low-income communities like Chinatown.
Most residents in New York City don’t know that the results of zoning
dictate how a community is developed, or how their neighborhoods are
currently zoned. There have been over 100 rezonings of neighborhoods under
Mayor Bloomberg and that change is palpable.
Chinatown’s current zoning does not reflect the changes or the needs of the
community. Zoning processes are overly complicated and time-consuming.
And if community organizations like CAAAV are not at the table, any
rezoning of Chinatown will change the makeup of those who are most
vulnerable: low-income residents and immigrants.
Please help us spread pass along these postcards. And let people know
about about our work. Feel free to contact Esther Wang at
firstname.lastname@example.org share your Chinatown stories or to get more
information on how to get
We hope you’re able to spend this day with the people and community you
choose to spend it with, and that every day is full of joy and love.
All the best,
