Empower DC to Hold Town Hall on Public Housing Conditions

Grassroots organization Empower DC will host a virtual town hall on public housing at 11 a.m. Saturday, aiming to highlight the mental and physical harm public housing residents face from poor living conditions such as lead, mold, rodent and insect infestations, and general disrepair.

A panel of residents will share personal stories of what they, their families and neighbors have to endure, the organization said in an issued statement announcing the event.

For years, the federal government and local governments have disinvested in public housing, and a sizable part of the D.C. Housing Authority’s public housing stock is uninhabitable despite significant strides made in getting local dollars committed to public housing repairs, Empower DC said.

“This is their [DCHA] job, they get paid and go home. However, this is our lives, we suffer in these conditions every day,” Heather Daye, one of the scheduled panelists, said in the statement.
