Statement of Principles
for New York's Recovery
In the coming weeks and months, New York City will undertake the heroic work of rebuilding. It is clear that the tragedy of September 11 will not only
affect the financial district of Lower Manhattan, but will have far-reaching impacts throughout the City and Region; it is equally clear that recovering will demand commitment and sacrifice from every New Yorker. It
is imperative that our response be informed by values of inclusion, democracy, and transparency, and that it address the needs of all who live and work in the region.
During the past few weeks, PICCED has been invited to participate in discussions convened by representatives of the many sectors who are assessing the issues raised by the attack and the recovery
process. We have been contacted by elected officials at the City, State, and Federal levels, by civic organizations and by researchers - but above all, by community-based organizations who have been engaged in struggles for social, economic, and
environmental justice, and who are concerned about the short- and long-term impacts the events of September 11 will have on low-income neighborhoods and communities of color.
From the discussions we have convened or participated in to date, key principles that must inform the recovery effort are becoming clear. As well, specific ways in which PICCED can work to actualize those principles are beginning to emerge.
