City Life/Vida Urbana is a grassroots community organization in Boston committed to fighting for racial, social, and economic justice and gender equality by building working class power through direct action, coalition building, education and advocacy.
City Life/Vida Urbana is proof that local residents, when active and organized, can significantly improve their own lives. Created in the Jamaica Plain neighborhood of Boston in 1973 by political activists influenced by the civil rights, feminist, and anti-Vietnam War movements, City Life/Vida Urbana’s successful strikes and eviction blockings quickly made the organization visible with tenants, landlords, urban planners, and public officials.
