Michael Freimuth: Helping the Victims of Gentrification

​Michael Freimuth and the team at Franklyn want to help the victims of gentrification. However to do so, they need your help - which comes in the form of a vote. 

From Michael: New York City (especially our neighborhood of Williamsburg, Brooklyn) is gentrifying at a rapid pace. As big business moves in, the small businesses that give our neighborhoods character often struggle to compete and pay rent as real estate values skyrocket. While we don’t oppose big business, we would like to help level the playing field a bit so that the two can co-exist. The Save Our Mom and Pops (S.O.M.P.) program aims to do just that by providing deserving small businesses with pro-bono creative and design help. The Mission Main Street Grant would allow us to fund this worthy initiative. Vote for us! (Warning: Facebook account required)
