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: firstname.lastname@example.org
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: battleforbrooklyn.com
Housing Notebook, a production of the Metropolitan Council on Housing, normally airs Mondays on WBAI, 99.5 FM, from 8 to 9 PM in the New York metropolitan area, and on the Internet atwww.wbai.org.
