A People's Roundtable to End Homelessness
JOIN THE WAY HOME CAMPAIGN ON JUNE 22 FOR A PEOPLE'S BUDGET ROUNDTABLE TO END HOMELESSNESS!
We need you to raise your voice to tell the DC Council that investing in housing is investing in health, and more must be done to end homelessness this budget season. Due to COVID-19, we are taking our advocacy online and will be 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. Sign up for your spot to speak below!
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 sign up for a time block below. *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 email@example.com 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
