This was sent to us by Jennifer Knox of VOICE:

Virginians Organized for Interfaith Community Engagement (VOICE) will publicly recognize the successful resolution of a yearlong struggle to win a just relocation for James Bland public housing residents at the September 25 City Council meeting.

VOICE leaders pressed the Alexandria Redevelopment and Housing Authority (ARHA) and the Alexandria City Council for fair treatment in the relocation of about 180 families during the demolition and redevelopment of their homes. VOICE specifically asked for and won reimbursement of moving expenses for transferred residents and timely notice and right to view and accept their new home. VOICE insists these residents have first right of refusal to return to the newly developed property.

 

Who:        40 clergy, lay and tenant leaders from VOICE

When:      Saturday, September 25, 2010

Where:     Alexandria City Hall, 301 King Street, Alexandria VA
