Resist Amazon — Long Island City Community Forum

  • Redeemer Episcopal Church Astoria 30-14 Crescent Street NY, 11102 United States (map)

Amazon has announced it will build a new headquarters in Long Island City, with giveaways from the state and city reaching up to $3 billion. Meanwhile subway service degrades, schools are overcrowded, we put up with run-down conditions in our buildings, and rents keep going up. With Amazon's move, we can only expect things to get worse, as landlords and the city have new incentives to push working people out.

Join members of the Long Island City community to discuss the impact Amazon will have on Western Queens and how we can organize to strengthen tenant protections and strengthen our community.
