The PCP’s 17-page plan is divided into 3 planks: Housing & Displacement, Cultural Funding Equity & Labor Equity. It launched in July 2017 at Artists Space and in September, The PCP’s response to the city’s plan was published in Hyperallergic. Grullon has co-authored Op Eds on The PCP for Hyperallergic and City Limits and self-authored Organized Hope: Reflections on The People’s Cultural Plan for The Latinx Project at New York University.
