From The Blog
On Thursday, July 23, the DC Council took its final vote on the Fiscal Year 2021 budget, choosing to cut health and human services during a global pandemic because the majority of councilmembers decided that undoing an advertising tax was more important.
The DC Council needs to do so much more to get us to a #JustRecoveryDC. DC had a preexisting affordable housing crisis that is about to get much worse as a result of the global pandemic and economic recession.
It’s that time of year again—time to fight for DC residents through an equitable budget.
