Join the Coalition on Homelessness for a fun, free, participatory workshop.

What does Donald Trump’s proposed budget mean for people who are homeless?
How can King County residents influence federal decisions about funding and programs that help, house, and shelter our neighbors?

Only 1 in 4 people who need housing assistance actually get this help. Congress has already imposed spending camps that have limited Section 8 vouchers and other rental assistance, and public housing authorities, underfunded for decades, are bracing for even deeper cuts.

Hear the latest from Washington, D.C. about key budget and policy priorities related to housing and homelessness (funding for public housing, Section 8 vouchers) and related federal supports (Medicaid, Medicare, Food Stamps).

Get a Civics 101 refresher from Nancy Amidei – how a bill becomes a law, who represents you in Washington, D.C. and how to communicate with them, and how YOU can be an effective advocate for housing, services, and shelter.

Speak up and learn how to get other people to speak up with you!
