This #TaxDay, Bread for the City Stands for Investment in Rental Assistance

This May 29, Supervising Attorney at Bread for the City, Amy Gellatly, shared this written testimony as part of the Budget Oversight Hearing on the Department of Human Services. This Tax Day, when we reflect on how our city’s budget should reflect the values of its residents, we look back to this testimony from May, when, like now, many of those residents were concerned with rent during this current health and economic crisis. We continue to ask the DC Council for a #JustRecovery which we believe supports rent justice.
