Our Homes, Our Voices Rally July 26th!

On July 26, 2017 at 11 a.m. EDT, the Campaign for Housing and Community Development Funding (CHCDF) will lead a rally on Capitol Hill to raise awareness of the importance of federal housing programs and call on Congress to fully invest in affordable housing. The rally is taking place as part of the Our Homes, Our Voices National Week of Action and will feature members of Congress, national advocates, and individuals who would be affected by proposed budget cuts. CHCDF has invited Senator Chris Van Hollen (D-MD) and Representatives Barbara Lee (D-CA), David Price (D-NC), Adriano Espaillat (D-NY), Mark Takano (D-CA), and other members of Congress to speak at the event.

Further information about the Twitterstorm and action plans for the other days during the National Week of Action may also be found here. Resources to be used throughout the Our Homes, Our Voices campaign may be found here. With a unified voice, we will demand that Congress invest in our families and our communities.
