Last week’s unveiling of President Trump’s budget philosophy “America First” decidedly dismisses the needs of ordinary Americans. The proposed budget decimates almost every domestic program funding, including 6 Billion dollars from the Department of Housing and Urban Development, also known as HUD. Affordable housing as Americans know it stands to be all but eliminated, not that it was adequately funded in the first place. The time for resistance is now and it begins with CarsonWatch.
CarsonWatch aims to organize housing activists to fight back against defunding HUD. Resistance has proven effective at disrupting the Trump agenda with the Affordable Care Act, the same must be done for affordable housing. CarsonWatch provides updates for participants to know when resistance is needed. It is organized by the Poverty & Race Research Action Council, the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, and PolicyLink. Sign up for their email alerts and be ready to fight for fair accessible, affordable housing for all.
