“CVH has been apart of a demonstration of social justice. The fact they were involved in the justice for Ramarley Graham to climate change to even health issues and safety hazards in public housing. All the issues that are addressed in CVH is what made me appreciate the organization”
“It is important to realize the class struggle and the race struggle. The solution is to free the oppressed form the struggle. It’s about the fact that NYC is in a crisis and you wish for someone to make those issues a priority. CVH prioritizes people’s needs.”
- Joseph Mpa, 43. Member since January 2012
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.
