Whose Foods Rally on Monday, 2/28, TOMORROW NIGHT

Hi JP Neighbors,

Come out to the Whose Foods Rally on Monday, 2/28! There's a lot of momentum right now in the opposition to Whole Foods coming to JP, but the most vital piece of the resistance is the voice of community members. We need people to come together and show by numbers that there is strong opposition to a Whole Foods in JP. See below for details.

Rally for an Affordable and Diverse JP

Mon, February 28th, 6pm, Mozart Park

Then come to a hearing of the JP Neighborhood Council at 7pm at the Kennedy School

Do you want a JP that’s affordable for all families? Do you want to strengthen JP’s diversity?

Whole Foods is not inevitable ‐ another business can flourish in Hyde Square.

JP has a 30‐year history of residents working together to keep JP intact.
We stopped a highway. We stopped Kmart. We can stop Whole Foods.

Whole Foods in unaffordable to many families in JP and the expansion of this upscale chain into Hyde Square will drive up real estate and commercial prices, displacing even more low‐income families and merchants – many of the very people who made JP the great place it is today.

Hyde Square is home to families of all income levels and many cultures. Let’s keep it that way.

Manifestación por un JP accesible y diverso

Lunes, 28 de Feb., 6pm, Mozart Park

Luego vamos a una audiencia del “JP Neighborhood Council” a las 7pm en la Escuela Kennedy

¿Quiere un JP que sea accesible para todas las familias? ¿Quiere fortalecer la diversidad de JP?

Whole Foods no es inevitable – otro negocio puede florecer en Hyde Square.

Durante 30 años los residentes han trabajado juntos para manterner a JP intacto. Detuvimos una autopista. Detuvimos Kmart. Podemos detener a Whole Foods.

Whole Foods no es económico para muchas familias en JP y la expansión de esta cadena en Hyde Square provocará aumentos en precios de viviendas y comercios, desplazando aún más a las familias de bajos y moderados ingresos y comerciantes – muchos de los que hicieron de JP lo que hoy es.

Hyde Square es el hogar de familias de todos los ingresos y culturas. Preservémoslo así.
