Reminder that we are in the process of transitioning executive directors. While we are sad to say goodbye to @Mariafoscarinis, @AKFasanelli is joining us with years of experience working to end homelessness at @HPRPmaryland!
The Law Center welcomes the increase in funding for housing/homelessness in @JoeBiden's budget, but in order to meet the full need of the Admin's commitment to the #right2housing, we will need to see even more in the Jobs and Infrastructure bills!
H/t to @Kat_Monet @NCHVorg for sharing this agenda from @USICHgov's meeting with @DeptVetAffairs, leading with the message that "Housing is a Right for All." Still brings me joy every time I see it! #HousingIsAHumanRight
After a two-month encampment at City Hall, followed by a week of escalation after City Hall threatened to evict them, the Kansas City Homeless Union has won what could be the seedlings of a citywide social housing program in Kansas City. https://twitter.com/KCTenants/status/1380225359191363591
This past week, for the 1st time in nearly 32 years, the Law Center welcomed a new Executive Director. @AKFasanelli brings passion and years of experience advocating for the homeless, and we couldn't be more excited to have her!
"It’s hard to obtain sweeping verdicts that will guarantee broad rights for homeless people because they are not a protected class under federal civil rights law, nor do the courts recognize a legal right to housing." - Tristia Bauman
