Ten years in the making, the new documentary DECADE OF FIRE is dedicated to the unsung community heroes who stayed, fought and re-built their abandoned Bronx community. As you are aware, the community today is on the brink of displacement, yet again. We’re hoping this film and the information it uncovers will educate, inform and inspire a new generation of organizers and communities in NY and across the nation as they continue to fight for housing rights, economic justice and more.
 About the film: 
In the 1970s, the Bronx was on fire. Left unprotected by the city government, nearly a half-million people were displaced as their close-knit, multiethnic neighborhood burned, reducing the community to rubble. While insidious government policies caused the devastation, Black and Latino residents bore the blame. In this story of hope and resistance, Bronx native Vivian Vazquez exposes the truth about the borough’s sordid history and reveals how her embattled and maligned community chose to resist, remain and rebuild.
