On this past Monday, Howie Hawkins appeared on a livestream where he was joined by special guests Kymone Freeman and Will Merrifield, to discuss the national housing crisis, which has been all but ignored in the presidential debates thus far.
Kymone Freeman is an award-winning playwright, a 2010 Green For All Fellow, and the co-founder of We Act Radio (which the Washington City Paper named as DC’s Best Social Justice Radio Station in 2017)!
Will Merrifield is a housing attorney and at-large candidate for DC city council. He is calling for social housing and a Green New Deal for DC while he is running on a platform of human rights and solutions to
the problems created by a lack of affordable housing.
You can watch the replay of this livestream program here.
Both Will and Howie are working toward an expansion of low-income housing, to solve the problem of affordability to decent housing.
These sorts of solutions, including the housing section of the Green New Deal, are the ideas that won't get put onto the public debate if Greens are not on the ballot.
We still have some time before Election Day to get our word out to people who still haven't voted early. Many are still on the fence, and the way to get to them about these solutions is to call or text them. But this takes resources, and we need your help.
