Webinar to Address D.C. Housing Woes During Pandemic

A webinar moderated by attorney Caitlin Cocilova of the Washington Legal Clinic for the Homeless will be held at 1:30 p.m., Saturday via Zoom to highlight solutions to D.C.’s housing crisis.

Panelists will include Shonta High, president of the Park Morton Resident Council, a public housing community undergoing redevelopment in Ward 1, and Roger Williams, tenant leader with the citywide DC Tenants Union, which is calling for rent cancellation during the coronavirus pandemic.

D.C. Council member Brianne Nadeau, who chairs the council’s Committee on Human Services, will serve as a special guest.

“The COVID-19 pandemic increases the urgency of our long-standing demand that all D.C.’s low-income and homeless residents be housed,” said Parisa Norouzi, executive director of Empower DC. “For the safety of everyone in our city, we must immediately ensure housing for residents who are most susceptible to the virus.”
