Tenants from across the country descended on D.C. to fight against Trump's proposed budget cuts to HUD.

Hundreds of protesters from across the country joined Community Voices Heard, in partnership with New York Communities for Change and members of the #NoCuts Coalition, to march on Washington, DC to oppose the Trump administration's proposed $7 billion cut to federal housing programs. 


Senator Elizabeth Warren, Rep. Nydia Velasquez, Rep. Adriano Espaillat, Rep. Jan Shakowsky, and other Congress members joined our rally at the Church of the Reformation and echoed our demands to end the Wall Street giveaways and privatization of our communities.  The eleced officals  demanded that President Donald Trump restore Housing and Urban Development Department funding and provide better housing qualities for people living on low incomes

Afterwards, participants delivered a letter to HUD Secretary Ben Carson to demand that he meet with the #NOCuts coalition and paid a visit to private equity vampires Blackstone to let them know that we will not allow them to take our homes.  We will continue to fight against any cuts to HUD. Stand with us! Join the #NOCUTS Coalition.

I have lived in Brooklyn, NY over 30 years and I now live in East New York for 5 months now. The changes I have noticed in my community are gentrification and the dmisplacement of people in the communities from where they grew up. Although there is a lot of diversity increasing, people who have invested time in the community can’t afford to stay there and often times they have no place to go.

I have lived in New York for 30-35 years. In my community of Rockaway Beach, I have lived here for 15-16 years and I raised my daughter there. The changes I have noticed are development of private houses, a recreational YMCA, new supermarket and new roads. The violence has decreased in Rockaway Beach area due to a better community policing that is involved. I look forward to the changes later this year.

My campaign was and still is public housing. Since 1988 I have lived in New York and since 1989 I have lived at Wagner Housing. The types of changes I have noticed in my community are two supermarkets’ that are privately owned. To me, I consider this a bad thing because the prices are outrages. The vendors are no longer in the streets because of it. In terms of crime, Wagner housing is the worse development.
