Raise Up for Public Housing TOMORROW at Noon!

SAVE & IMPROVE PUBLIC HOUSING! Rally and Hearing 

Wednesday, April 30, 2014 

12:00 Noon

Wilson Building, 1350 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW

Metro Center/Federal Triangle Station 

 

Did you know that:

  • There is ZERO $$$ In the DC Budget for PUBLIC HOUSING?

  • There are HUNDREDS of units sitting VACANT while over 800 DC families are HOMELESS?

  • There are over 70,000 people on the waiting list, but DC is DEMOLISHING UNITS?

  • The "replacement" units are NOT public housing & most residents don't qualify!

Join Empower DC to demand DC:

  • Renovate vacant units for homeless families! 
  • Fund & complete needed repairs!
  • Stop demolishing public housing!
We will rally outside, then pack the budget hearing for DCHA & support residents who will testify!  If you want to testify, sign up by calling Kate at (202) 724-8198

To RSVP, get more info, request assistance with preparing testimony, request transportation or volunteer to help with outreach and phone banking before the rally, contact Schyla at (202) 234--9119 x 101 or housing@empowerdc.org.

*Buses are being organized to transport people from Barry Farm, Greenleaf and other locations*
