Join us this Tuesday at 7 p.m. for an important conversation on the 
deliberate efforts of Mayor Bloomberg, Council Member Mark-Viverito, and 
others to gentrify and displace longtime residents of East Harlem. 
Although she has deceitfully promoted herself as a "progressive" and 
"pro-community" politician, she has not fooled the people of El Barrio. 
We know the truth behind the millionaire Mark-Viverito and her appalling 
voting record, which consistently puts the interests of the wealthy at 
the expense of her constituency.
