Fight displacement and win in 2017
30 Dec 2016
2016 is a year many people wish we could just do-over. At City Life/Vida Urbana, we're glad to be entering 2017 with one of our strongest victories - and one of our latest - in our hearts. We fought with tenants in Dorchester and Mattapan and helped them WIN! This winter, 59 apartment units - the homes of dozens of low-income Bostonians - were converted into deed-restricted affordable housing! In 2017, we're ready to even fight harder - and win even more. Click here to help us end Boston's displacement crisis by donating. All donations are fully tax-deductible.

Darcell, a tenant in the Dorchester apartments, is one of our heroes. Even while dealing with a physical injury and unlivable conditions in her apartment, Darcell took every opportunity to rock the megaphone in support of this campaign. "At City Life, we make a lot of noise so the world will hear us," Darcell says.

To those of you who have already given to our current fund drive - THANK YOU! You are the community that keeps City Life/Vida Urbana alive and kicking as we head into our 44th year.

For those that haven't yet - now is the time! Please donate by December 31st.
