Testify in Favor of the Green New Deal for Housing Amendment Act of 2022!
The DC Council's Committee on Housing and Executive Administration is holding a hearing on November 22nd, 11am, on the Green New Deal for Housing Amendment Act of 2022 . More info on the bill can be found here:

The bill, which already has majority support in the Council, would allow investments in District-owned social housing developments and require the Mayor to evaluate certain properties for conversion into social housing developments before disposing of them.. It will also make DC a leader in the fight against the climate crisis by making sure all buildings run on clean energy and have zero emissions. And, at the same time, it will also make sure each building formed has strong tenant control - ability to elect leadership, hire and fire management companies, and manage a community budget.ย This bill as a whole will revolutionize how our current system operates. So, thank you for your support!

We are looking for DC residents to give oral testimony during the hearing via Zoom. We are particularly looking for testimony from Black residents as well as people of color. If you or if someone in your family would or could have in the past benefited from this bill, your testimony would be really appreciated. Even if you are not affected or are in a place of privilege, your support of this bill may have sway over certain councilmembers.

Please fill out this form and we will forward this information to the committee to get you on the witness list. We will then send you an email with information on how to join the Zoom call to share your experiences with the council and why you support this bill. You can expect to be contacted by organizers soon after filling out this form to discuss your participation in this hearing and offer you some guidance on crafting your testimony. ๐—ง๐—ต๐—ถ๐˜€ ๐—ณ๐—ผ๐—ฟ๐—บ ๐˜„๐—ถ๐—น๐—น ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—บ๐—ฎ๐—ถ๐—ป ๐—ผ๐—ฝ๐—ฒ๐—ป ๐˜‚๐—ป๐˜๐—ถ๐—น November 18thย before the names gathered are forwarded to the committee staff.
