It is important that, when developing its options for resolving this crisis, that the DC Housing Authority consider the important and distinct role that public housing plays in DC’s housing ecosystem.
If you believe, like we do, in the power of people’s stories and the importance of their voice, we hope you will consider responding to Fair Budget’s campaign to ensure that this community engagement work will continue.
We are asking the Housing Committee to make critical changes before marking up the bill, and to commit to a longer process to figure out the best way to store people’s belongings after an eviction if they can’t gather them within the required window.
Join us Friday (8/31) to tell the Mayor that the health and lives of DC General families are worth more than whatever pressure is propelling the Mayor forward.
As has been true for now more than thirty years, we are an effort of the community, coming together from our various perspectives and experiences…companions on the journey towards a more just and inclusive DC.
