How You Can Help
(Updated July 28, 2021)
Contribute: Silent Auction and GoFundMe
On May 11, 2021, the LPC approved Hope Street Capital’s proposal without mentioning the community opposition in their deliberation. Thousands of residents, local officials and community groups were utterly dismissed after months of protest. We put our weight against the door of an invading developer, and LPC has nonchalantly unlatched it, and let them in.
But the fight against Hope Street doesn’t end here. We have 4 months to file an Article 78 lawsuit against the LPC’s decision—and a fraction of that time to fundraise for it.
Please contribute what you can and share the below link widely. No amount is too small, and certainly no amount is too large.
