Today, on the winter solstice – the darkest day of the year – we honor the lives and mourn the passing of the more than 70 District residents who died homeless this year. Twenty-three of these members of our community were victims of the coronavirus. More fell victim to racism, greed, housing insecurity, and health disparities…the afflictions of this moment in time that render those experiencing homelessness as “other.” In their memory, we re-commit ourselves to the Legal Clinic’s important work to forge a more just and inclusive DC. We welcome your companionship on this journey.
