Bronx Voices for Equal Inclusion Press Conference

As a reminder, there will be a press conference today at 11:00 a.m. on the steps on the Bronx Court House where the Bronx Voices for Equal Inclusion (BVEI) will be joined by in solidarity by a number of groups including the Alliance. BVEI, a coalition of community leaders and residents will be voicing their concerns about the major development projects proposed for the South Bronx including the new Yankee Stadium and the redeveloped Bronx Terminal Market. The general feeling is that the community has been ignored, that the development process has been secretive and that there are specific impacts (traffic, asthma, gentrification) that need to be addressed.
