Community Strike

  • Industry City Represents everything that has put us in harm’s way for generations- Colonization and Corporate Greed

  • Plans to use our industrial waterfront commercially, instead of climate adaptation, mitigation, and resilience

  • Has tried to use concessions to get their rezoning passed, while we must prepare for a very real threat; Climate Change

The community alternative vision for the waterfront is “The GRID

  • Retain the maritime and Industrial character of Sunset Park

  • Stop the loss of manufacturing

  • Capitalize on public investment and infrastructure in Sunset Park to create new well-paid jobs and business options for residents.

  • Build sustainable community-driven development that implements a Just Transition and provide well-paying jobs.
