Danny Barber is the Chair of the Citywide Council of Presidents of NYCHA Tenant Associations and Elie Hecht is the Director of At Risk Community Services, which runs youth programming at NYCHA complexes. Barber and Hecht are also co-plaintiffs in a lawsuit against NYCHA, part of the recent increase in scrutiny of the public housing authority, and joined Max & Murphy for the podcast.

Barber and Hecht discuss their lawsuit as well as recent actions by Governor Andrew Cuomo regarding NYCHA, how Mayor de Blasio has managed the housing authority, and other issues related to public housing in New York City.
