July 11 2022: Housing Needs, Met and Unmet, In DC

The first forum in our four-part housing forum series was a rousing success, with four great panelists, 60+ attendees, important questions, and spirited debate. If you missed it, or want to re-watch, the recording and chat are now available.

You can also check out our thread of live tweets.

Many thanks to our panelists: 

  • Drew Hubbard, Interim Director, Department of Housing and Community Development
    Sheldon Clark, Board Member & Founding President, Douglass Community Land Trust
    Beth Mellen, Supervising Attorney of the Legal Aid Society of the District of Columbia and Supervising Attorney of the Housing Law Unit
    Will Merrifield, Executive Director, The Center for Social Housing and Public Investment

Thanks also to moderator Jim Wright of the Washington Informer, and to Councilmember Anita Bonds, who joined the call from the audience to answer a question about the status of the social housing/Green New Deal bill.

A follow-up blog post with links to many of the resources mentioned in the talk will be coming soon.
