Community organizations and grassroots campaigns have undergone a vast evolution since Jane Jacobs first led her crusade against Robert Moses and his plan to build a massive thoroughfare through Downtown Manhattan. As the first of two free Pre-Conference events to kick-off our Annual Preservation Conference, this panel will feature some of New York City's most ambitious grassroots organizers as they discuss their current efforts in political activism. Andrew Berman, executive director of the Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation, will moderate this informal conversation between Reverend Billy and Savitri D. of the Church of Stop Shopping, Candace Carponter of Develop Don't Destroy Brooklyn, Yolanda Gonzalez of Nos Quedamos and Miquela Craytor of Sustainable South Bronx.
