May the Momentum Be With You

NUBE joined with many other organizations to form the largest Momentum Training in history! We had a blast and came back with big dreams for East Boston. 

 

Join us in organizing for Just Cause Eviction

NUBE is canvassing for a Just Cause Eviction law.

Currently in Massachusetts, landlords can evict “no fault,” which means they do not need to provide a reason. While most landlords will provide a reason, many evictions are no-fault. A lot of big corporate landlords and flippers are using this as a way to push people out of our communities to make more profit.

A Just Cause Eviction law would put the brakes on the displacement chain reaction by protecting vulnerable renters.

Principles of a Fair Economy in East Boston

As East Boston residents, we want our community to have a vibrant, active, diverse, and healthy economy that allows our families to prosper and have the best quality of life possible.  However, the high cost of living, unstable and poor quality jobs, inequality, criminalization, discrimination and an environment that doesn’t promote community integration and healthy coexistence threaten the economic prosperity of our families.
