“When I first came to Barry Farm, I was very scared. I had never lived in public housing before. It was my starting point.  Over the years I noticed the neighborhood changing.  People were leaving, houses throughout the community were boarded up. It was very concerning for me.  Organizing has given me a clearer picture of the deception going on with the housing authority. I look forward to bringing awareness to residents, like myself, who have no idea of the dangers their families are facing with public housing being phased out.  I organize because I realize I have to do it for my community.”
