The National Coalition for the Homeless held a NATIONAL DAY OF ACTION FOR HOUSING in Washington, DC, and in communities across the country, on Saturday, April 1, 2017.

Nearly 1,000 advocates in 25 cities nationwide took part to protest cuts to affordable housing, racial inequality in our cities, and the criminalization of poverty. These remain our demands:

  1. Preserve funding and create further local, state and national housing resources solely for extremely low to moderate income, elderly and disabled households.
  2. Stop ordinances, policies and practices that 1) criminalize and harrass people who are unhoused, 2) promote racial discrimination, or 3) prevent equal treatment of immigrants, people with disabilities, or those who identify as LGBTQ, especially in access to housing, employment and healthcare.
  3. Ensure that safety net programs like food assistance, health care and emergency housing are available to any Americans residents in need of support.
