Hello Fighters for Rights and Housing!
This past 2 weeks we did in-depth interviews on housing. The stories and direction we gathered through this is powerful! We are compiling our housing research from our work with DU and pushing forward with entering the data from our housing surveys…!
On Monday HAND member Jerry Burton led an educational presentation on Juneteenth and why it matters today for the houseless community! Watch some of it live steamed here https://fb.watch/dPanImnI-i/
Also on Monday City Council voted to approve Tax Increment Financing for the All Inn Motel to turn it into a luxury hotel and kick out all the houseless people living there now. HAND members spoke to oppose this appalling destruction of badly needed emergency housing! City Council approved this luxury takeover of this critical low-income motel two weeks after votig to exclude these same poor people from their “expanding affordable housing” bill.
Thanks to Candi CdeBaca, Robin Knish, and Paul Kashman voting against this proposal.
