Recording: Solutions to DC's Housing Affordability Crisis

On Thursday, April 20, the Young Dems of Ward 6 and Young Dems of Ward 2 committees co-hosted the final session in their housing affordability series, a panel discussion that focused on solutions to the crisis.

Panelists included:

  • Alex Baca (DC Policy Director, Greater Greater Washington)

  • Leonard Edwards (Advocate, Bread for the City)

  • Will Merrifield (Founder and Executive Director, The Center for Social Housing)

  • Sheila Reid (Owner, Avanti Real Estate Services)

  • Moderator: Jamal Holtz (President, DC Young Dems)

The conversation was lively and wide-ranging, covering issues related to renting and owning; social housing; land use; the role and impact of the city, developers, and investors; and housing as a key component of more comprehensive anti-poverty work.
