Save the South Village — Rev. Donna Schaper
The South Village is not only made up of wonderful people and businesses, but remarkable institutions that have served a vibrant community of immigrants and activists for over one-hundred years.
One of those is Judson Memorial Church – located in one of New York’s first landmarked buildings, the church has been a pioneering crusader for social justice in this community since the late 19th century.
Watch Rev. Schaper’s video explaining why it’s so important for the City to protect the South Village with long-promised landmark designation NOW:

The South Village is under increasing threat from demolition of historic buildings and out-of-scale new construction. The recently approved NYU upzoning to its east, and the proposed Hudson Square rezoning to its south and west, will only increase the pressure on this area.
