Justice for Barry Farms! Add your name to our letter to DC Mayor Muriel Bowser to show you stand with the Barry Farm Tenants and Allies Association (BFTAA) in calling for Redevelopment in Place for the Barry Farm public housing community.
Stop displacing Black residents from their homes and communities! Keeping people on the site is the only guaranteed way that hundreds of original Barry Farm residents will be able to maintain their place in the “new” community. Development plans call for 1,000 new private units to be built on the 24-acre site, in addition to replacing public housing units. But previous redevelopment projects have taught us – new entry criteria, years of waiting, smaller unit sizes and other barriers keep most original residents from returning to their redeveloped properties.
Let’s make sure that the residents who are fighting to keep their place in Barry Farm are protected! Sign the letter, and then share it with the hashtag #JusticeforBarryFarm on social media.
