On Thursday, February 5th, at 6:00 p.m. on the steps of City Hall in Northampton, our community demonstrated their support for AFFORDABLE HOUSING in Northampton! This is the first project of its kind (at least in a long, long time) and we need to make sure that city council makes it real.
Although weather conditions forced us to cut this event short, this event emphasized the very real need for affordable housing in our city.
The Facebook event is also posted here.
