Our Homes, Our Voices: Rally for Affordable Homes

July 31, 2017 @ 11:30 am – 1:30 pm
Citizens' Housing and Planning Association, Inc. CHAPA

Join residents, housing advocates, and policymakers to rally in support of federal investments in affordable homes and our communities! Speakers will include Mayor Martin J. Walsh and Congresswoman Katherine Clark.

Too many families are struggling to keep a roof over their heads. Nationally, only 25% of families in need receive housing assistance, which means millions of people do not have an affordable place to call home. The President and Congress are proposing devastating cuts that would increase housing instability and homelessness, including cuts to Section 8 and public housing. Our communities and state are working hard to address the challenges we face in Massachusetts. We cannot do it alone. Federal partnership is critical to creating vibrant communities.

On Monday, July 31 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., we rally together in front of Faneuil Hall to urge Congress to invest in affordable homes and our communities.

Join us to ensure that everyone has the right to a safe, accessible, and affordable home.
