This event is Part 2 of our 2-part series: Regional Housing Justice for Security and Stability. Part 1 will take place on June 18, 2021.
Though there have been notable improvements in reducing family homelessness, the DMV has one of the nation's highest rates of unhoused residents. The unhoused population is primarily young and single people and disproportionality Black. Recent homeless census results revealed that regionally, Black families make up roughly 88 percent of homeless families. High housing costs and limited affordable housing stock have been significant drivers in housing instability. Join us to explore housing as a human right and investments needed to increase the supply of affordable housing for the lowest-income households and transformative approaches to housing security to improve health and social outcomes.
