Inquilinos Boricuas en Accion. Check ’em out!

“In 1968, a group of predominately Puerto Rican community activists successfully stared down the bulldozers of urban renewal and organized to gain control over the development of their neighborhood– a seminal moment in the history of affordable housing, civil rights and community organizing in the city of Boston. Today, Villa Victoria, the 435 unit housing community of 3,000 multicultural residents that they developed, remains an affordable housing oasis in Boston’s gentrified and affluent South End neighborhood, because of the efforts of Inquilinos Boricuas en Acción (IBA).” -From IBA’s website.

Check out this amazing local community group.
We look forward to expanding our relationship with IBA and the Villa Victoria community.
