Join The Way Home Campaign on June 22 between 3:00-6:00 PM for a People’s Budget Roundtable to end homelessness.
Due to COVID-19, we are taking our advocacy online and we need to push the DC Council to find the money to end chronic homelessness for 1,800 households. We are hosting an online roundtable to ensure that the DC Council hears from people with lived experience of homelessness and all people who believe that DC can and must end homelessness. We will invite the DC Council to listen in to this roundtable. Click here to sign up.
While this is not an official roundtable or hearing, we will be recording the session and accepting written remarks and hope to have your testimony submitted to the public record.
Each participant will be given 3 minutes to speak. Please click here to sign up for a time block. *Please note that these times are estimates. * You will be able to join this session either via zoom or by telephone. If you are unable to join us, but would like to submit written remarks, please email them to firstname.lastname@example.org By signing up, you consent to having your remarks recorded and used by The Way Home Campaign.
Some things your testimony might focus on are:
-Why you think DC should end homelessness
-How housing has impacted your life
-The importance of creating more low-income housing
-The connection between ending homelessness and racial equity
-Ways that DC’s budget can be used as a tool for housing justice
