South Bronx Unite

 

Socrisis_0002_South Bronx NYCSouth Bronx Unite is a new coalition, influenced by the Occupy Wall Street movement, fighting to protect and improve the social, environmental and economic future of the South Bronx, especially since Fresh Direct planned to relocate its warehouse into the area. South Bronx Unite holds a transformative view regarding how the South Bronx should be developed and has produced an alternative planning proposal. Its members are also providing community services according to this view, not only through their own activities but also through some of their associated organizations, such as Friends of Brook Park (who provide a community garden, youth programs, eco-tours, etc.).  Download report
