Join the Campaign for Fair Development

As Remington develops, neighbors are increasingly asking what the changes will mean for them and their place in the community. This summer, United Workers and the Baltimore Housing Roundtable are partnering with GRIA to explore issues of housing and development in the neighborhood. United Workers, through BHR, is working to build a movement for permanently affordable quality housing and community-driven development that meets our basic needs. Together, these groups are knocking on doors and talking to residents about their concerns with housing.

The survey is asking neighbors about their experiences with changes to rental prices or property taxes, if they’re interested in owning a home in the neighborhood, and if they would like to be involved in working with a team of residents to explore a community-driven housing initiative.

Interested in joining this process and talking to your neighbors? Please join our Organizing & Education committee for canvassing every Thursday and Friday night. Contact Adriana Foster if you would like to join, by e-mail,, or telephone, (210) 825-9925.

We would also like to invite everyone to the next GRIA community meeting on Wednesday, July 20 at 7pm for a Housing Speak-Out! This will be a space for Remington community members to voice their concerns around housing and development in the neighborhood and come together to explore community-driven approaches to affordable housing for our neighborhood.
