On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Washington Legal Clinic for the Homeless, board president Jim Rocap announces that after conducting a nationwide search, the Board by unanimous vote has appointed Amber W. Harding as the new Executive Director.
Our collective advocacy during the fiscal year 2023 budget season led to significant policy wins, and increased investment in deeply affordable housing – and there is still more work to be done!
We look forward to welcoming both attorneys and non-attorneys who share our vision of housing as a human right to the Legal Clinic team!
Despite living in a well-resourced District of Columbia, DC residents are facing homelessness, housing instability, and crisis-level lack of affordable housing every day, so there is much work to be done to address these issues in DC in order to further housing justice. The budget process is an opportunity to do just that.
As we look ahead at 2022, envision with us a year that holds promise for being the year when a great number of our unhoused neighbors are able, at long last, to go home.
Our Gratitude and Congratulations for the Alabama Ave/13th Street Coalition Members on their Vision for Housing Justice
This victory was made possible by a group of residents who refused to be marginalized and pushed out. Not only did they stay and fight, but they won. The Legal Clinic is honored to represent the Coalition and proud of our staff’s passionate and committed lawyering.
