Maryland Advocates Rally July 29th from 11:30am to 1:00pm in McKeldin Square to Call for Greater Federal Investments in Affordable Homes and Community Development

CONTACT: Sarah Sorensen, ssorensen at innow.org, 240-898-2183

BALTIMORE, MARYLAND – Hundreds of advocates, elected officials, and concerned Maryland Citizens are participating in the national Our Homes, Our Voices week of action from July 22-29 with a rally and press conference to bring attention to the affordable housing crisis in our community.  Advocates are concerned that Maryland will lose
$173 million in President Trump’s current budget proposal, reducing or eliminating programs for people with disabilities, low income families and seniors.

The rally and press conference will take place on Saturday, July 29th from 11:30 to 1:00pm at McKeldin Square located at 101 E. Pratt Street in Baltimore.  Everyone is invited to attend and hear from housing advocates, community leaders, and individuals who will be impacted by funding cuts. Find our event on Facebook by visiting https://www.facebook.com/events/153252358556458/

In Maryland and across the nation, far too many families– including low income seniors, people with disabilities, veterans, and families with children – struggle to keep a roof over their heads or are experiencing homelessness. More families are renting than ever before, and our nation’s investments in affordable housing have not kept pace.
As a result, rents are increasing everywhere. But, because of underfunding, three out of every four families in need of housing assistance are turned away.

Instead of reducing our nation’s investments in affordable housing, we need to make a bold and sustained commitment to ensure that everyone has a safe, accessible and affordable home. Because when we invest in affordable homes, we invest in people, our communities, and America as a whole – from increased employment and economic mobility to improved health and better education.
