Day for Housing – Your Advocacy is Needed on Blight Bills!
June 13, 2017 @ 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM| Free
Please come to Housing Alliance Delaware’s Annual Day for Housing at Christ Church in Dover, Tuesday, June 13, beginning at 11:00 a.m. Lunch will be served.
Special guest speaker: Sarah Jemison, Housing Advocacy Organizer, National Low Income Housing Coaliton
We will then leave for Legislative Hall to meet with our elected officials.
Two blight bills have been introduced and will be discussed the next day – June 14 – at the State House of Representative’s Community Affairs and Housing Committee Meeting. Representative J.J. Johnson is the House Sponsor and Senator Bryan Townsend is the Senate Sponsor of this legislation which evolved from discussions over the last year to take on blight as a Community Development Network policy initiative.
Let’s push these two bills to passage by meeting with legislators on these two bills after lunch on the 13th!
Because of the importance of this legislation, we are asking that you consider calling your legislator before next week’s meeting to schedule an appointment to discuss these two bills. This LINK will help locate your elected officials.
Please review this one page SUMMARY of the legislation.
When: Tuesday, June 13, 11:00 am – 1:00 pm
Where: Christ Church, S. State and E. Water Streets, Dover
Parking is available behind the church
Why? These two pieces of legislation are important tools in the fight against neighborhood blight and deterioration
