(NEW YORK, NY) — Social Media is now being used as tool in the fight to protect New York City’s public housing tenants.

On Thursday, the #CleanUpNYCHA campaign was launched by Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr., as reported by abc7NY.

The social media campaign will help shine a light on the sub-par living conditions in public housing.

It’s simple, it’s smart, and it can work. Tenants exposed to poor living conditions can use the hashtag to call attention to what needs to be fixed. Diaz Jr. and his colleagues will monitor the hashtag and contact authorities when necessary.

Social media has helped Diaz Jr. call attention to issues in the past. It has been used to clean up streets in the Bronx and has even helped residents in the South Bronx who had no running water.

“It’s sad that we’ve gotten to this point, but if we can use social media to correct and to right a wrong, then this is the way that we’re going to do it,” said Diaz Jr.
