Editorial – Public housing residents provide seminar in activism

Thu, 09/30/2010 : Alexandria Times

The public housing residents of James Bland and their
Old Town neighbors have provided a valuable lesson to the
public. Feeling unfairly treated by their housing authority
after they were given inadequate notice to move from their
homes late last year, they decided to something about it.
They organized — with the help of the interfaith organization
VOICE — and went about achieving a solution pragmatically
and effectively.
