NYCHA is the nation’s largest housing authority and New York City’s biggest landlord. It’s also a system plagued by controversy, home to upwards of half-a-million residents who must contend with issues of over-policing, crumbling infrastructure, environmental hazards and violence. With the Trump administration threatening to slash federal funding of the public housing authority, the award-winning BRIC #BHeard Town Hall Series will begin its new season by centering the voices of NYCHA residents from Brooklyn and beyond.
