Reps. Quigley and Ocasio-Cortez to Join Today’s (June 5) National HoUSed Campaign Call for Universal, Stable, Affordable Homes!

Join today’s (June 5) national HoUSed campaign call from 2:30 to 4 pm ET. NLIHC’s Diane Yentel will be joined by Representative Mike Quigley (D-IL), ranking member of the U.S. House of Representatives’ Committee on Appropriations’ Subcommittee on Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, for a conversation about threats to HUD’s fiscal year (FY) 2024 budget. Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) will join the call to talk about the urgent threats facing people experiencing homelessness, as anti-homelessness rhetoric rises and Congress prepares FY2024 budget negotiations. Pascale Leone and Tierra Labrada of the Supportive Housing Network of New York will discuss dehumanizing rhetoric against people experiencing homelessness. We will also receive field updates; share the latest updates from Capitol Hill on the final debt ceiling agreement; discuss advocacy needed to ensure the highest level of funding for housing and homelessness programs; provide an overview of the Request for Input issued by the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA); and outline ways advocates can take action to urge the federal government to protect renters.
