Alexis Smallwood

My name is Alexis Smallwood, I was born and raised in Harlem, until my adopted mother kicked me out at the age of 17 years old. For 6 years I lived in the DHS (Department of Homeless Services)-run shelter system, which is a huge scam, destroys  lives, and is a business.  July 6, 2006, I got my first apartment with my new born son.  Ocean Village, which has been renamed Arverne View, has been my home for 10 years. I've had three apartments in the same building! God is Good! My fear is  that we will end up like Harlem...gentrified. This is why I joined Rockaway Wildfire after Hurricane Sandy, because I knew that the developers  and certain political figures  were going to break ground as soon as possible. We are fighting for a community land trust in the Rockaways. The CLT is a symbol of community empowerment.
