Fight for housing rights in DC!
While thousands of families and individuals are homeless here in our 
nationís capitol, close to 29,000 units of housing remain vacant.  
Meanwhile, gentrification is threatening low- and moderate-income tenants
in  private, subsidized, and public housing and even forcing some out of
their  housing.  Demand that the DC government create and preserve decent
housing  that is affordable for all of DCís residents!

November 14 is a National Day of Housing Action!
Join organizations around the country in an effort to help win the
National  Affordable Housing Trust Fund!  If passed, the National
Affordable Housing  Trust Fund will create needed affordable housing in
volumes not seen since  the New Deal.
