Help us stop the displacement of low-income communities of color in Boston.


Defend and protect our communities. Donate now to City Life/Vida Urbana.

Help us build this growing resistance. When you donate to City Life, you are fighting displacement and growing a movement for true community ownership of land and housing.

Look at what our movement can do when we are organized: 

At the end of 2016, Dorchester and Mattapan residents of a slum landlord in bankruptcy learned how to mount a fierce resistance and fought to save 59 households from being displaced. These units are now under community control. This was a tremendous victory.

We will continue to organize to get more buildings out of the market and into the hands of the community.

We will strengthen and expand our popular education and organizing skills trainings for our members and our allies.

And, we will strategize with allies nationally across issues to mount a coordinated defense of our homes, families, communities, and land.

But, we can’t do it without you. Thank you for standing with us.

Lisa, Executive Director
