Three of our leaders went to Washington DC in July to participate in a rally against HUD’s budget cuts!  Check out what Lisa Sawyer, Kristina Sawyckyi, and Mr. B have to say about their trip here!

Kristina Sawyckyi was featured in the Urbanist a few months ago.  Thank you for telling your story, Kristina.

Lisa Sawyer, a Real Change vendor, wrote a piece for Real Change about her experience at the Washington Low Income Housing Alliance’s annual Conference on Ending Homelessness.  She can add journalist to her repertoire!
