Live from Albany: The Rent is Too High

Today on La Voz with Mariel Fiori we are broadcasting live from Albany, the capital of the state of New York, where more than a thousand people, members of a coalition of more than 80 organizations for Housing Justice come today to ask that our legislators vote in favor of a package of bills that would benefit renters and homeless residents across the state, including help for paying rent, fighting for safe and decent living conditions, and having access to permanent and stable housing.

I spoke with our representative, Assemblywoman Sarahana Shestra of the 103rd District, about today’s demonstration, which includes picketing in front of the governor’s house, visits with legislators, and a lot of singing: the rent is too damn high.
