What is LESON?
We are a committee of community leaders who came together to stop the proposed Megatowers on the LES waterfront, and to fight against displacement in Chinatown and LES.
We demand that the City:
Enforce the Large Scale Residential Development plan and stop the megatowers from being built on the Two Bridges waterfront
Pass the Chinatown Working Group rezoning plan
Support a sewage hookup moratorium in Lower Manhattan until the City has achieved compliance with the Clean Water Act
We cannot do this alone. We call on everyone in Chinatown and Lower East Side to organize with us to hold our elected officials accountable.
