Toronto Community Housing residents and allies from Jane and Finch and across the city held a rally on Friday, June 23 to protest the closure of over 100 community housing units.

Around 30 residents and ACORN (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now) members came together to demand repairs for social housing and an end to Toronto Community Housing closures all over Toronto. ACORN, the anti-poverty group organizing the rally, claim that with 90,000 people waiting for social housing, Toronto needs more affordable homes, not less.
