Do you want to speak out for affordable housing?
Not sure how to tell your story?
Want a hands-on training to make you a better advocate?

If you answered “Yes” to these questions, come to HOUSING ADVOCACY TRAINING!

Each week will focus on a new area of how to speak out and tell your story. Learn about the DC’s budget process, elected officials and their roles, practice writing and giving testimony, and meet other advocates.

Talia Brock at the Committee on Housing & Community Development Performance Oversight: "As affordable housing advocates, we are pleased that affordable housing will be preserved at each of these properties and that tenants will not be displaced. As organizers that support tenant power and agency, we are extremely disappointed in the events leading up to these projected plans. The reality is that while affordable housing will be preserved at these buildings, it happened without the tenants input. These are two situations where affordable housing full of at-risk tenants could have been lost. Tenants should not be manipulated or their rights ignored because of disability."
