Activist group The Bronx is Not For Sale pickets Sobro

Demonstrators take their message to the street.

Members of activist group and anti-gentrification group The Bronx is Not For Sale, picketed outside the SoBro headquarters in Melrose on Friday, January 15. The group called on SoBro, a non-profit affordable housing developer, to do more for poor and working class residents already in the area. The group is seeking ‘community control’ and a more democratic housing policy.
