Ward 6 Dems Join NCBL, Demand Immediate Action on Homelessness

With the unhoused population of DC experiencing significant vulnerability during the COVID-19 pandemic and with temperatures dropping as we move into the winter months, the officers of the Ward 6 Democrats signed onto a letter organized by the National Conference of Black Lawyers calling on Mayor Bowser and the DC Council to take action. We believe that every member of our community deserves a safe place to call home.

Solutions urged within the letter include:

  1. Fully implement the Vacant to Virus Reduction Plan
  2. Stop encampment destruction
  3. Provide more rent subsidies
  4. Provide personal property storage
  5. Provide for basic hygienic needs of the unhoused
  6. Provide for basic medical needs
