Here’s our initial take on what Mayor Bowser’s proposed budget does for affordable housing.
Add your voice to those calling for a racially and economically just DC budget this year, and follow #PutPeopleFirst on Twitter for updates as this important work moves forward!
We reflect on the fact that closing DC General was never the only, or even the most important, promise Mayor Bowser made to families experiencing homelessness. Only when all DC families have safe and secure housing will DC have ended family homelessness.
We are so very grateful for your readership, your advocacy engagement, and your support of the Legal Clinic. Happy #GivingTuesday!
DC now has an opportunity to thoughtfully meet the real needs of small or nonprofit landlords while not subsidizing the business of eviction for larger, high profit landlords.
