Looking For A Few Good

Volunteers and Interns

Tenants' Rights Research

Met Council on Housing is looking for individuals interested in 
expanding their
 knowledge of tenants' rights issues, and in helping  their fellow New
York City
 tenants, by taking on researching and writing projects about  specific
housing
topics. Work will be guided but  independent, with participants having
the opportunity
to meet and consult with experts in the field. Open to arrangements for
internships
for credit with students.

Computer Work From Home

Looking for a way to volunteer with Met Council on Housing from home? 
Many people
express interest in helping behind the scenes but are unable  to make it
to our
office. If you are comfortable working with computers, we  need
volunteers to help
put existing content onto our new website, which is currently under
development.
 No programming is involved, and work can be  done from home.

Interested? Please contact us at: active at metcouncil.net

Housing Notebook

Voice of the Tenant Movement

On the next Housing Notebook, this Monday, July 11th, at 8 p.m, host
Scott Sommer
will speak with Daniel Goldstein, co-founder of Develop Don't Destroy
Brooklyn,
and protagonist in the acclaimed documentary "Battle for Brooklyn," and
Suki Hawley,
one of the film's producers and directors.

As described on the film's website, "Battle for Brooklyn is an intimate
look at
the very public and passionate fight waged by residents and business
owners of Brooklyn's
historic Prospect Heights neighborhood facing condemnation of their
property to
make way for the polarizing Atlantic Yards project, a massive plan to
build 16 skyscrapers
and a basketball arena for the New Jersey Nets." For a list of
screenings, visit:
