Alazan-Apache Courts—aka Los Courts—are San Antonio, Texas’ oldest extant public housing development. Opened in 1940-41 at a time when housing, schools, and public facilities were legally segregated, Los Courts represents the historical legacy of public housing, the critical belief that housing is a human right, and the preservation of Mexican American history and community.
In the last two years, despite the growing affordable housing crisis, plans to demolish Los Courts have emerged.
Send a letter to the San Antonio Housing Authority and urge them to recognize Los Courts’ cultural and historic significance and rehabilitate rather than demolish it.
