Tell Ben Carson: No HUD Cuts!

September 19, 2017, 12:30pm - September 19, 2017, 2:30pm

Trump's appointee, Ben Carson is coming to Philadelphia. Details for Carson's "listening tour" have been hard to come by but he is supposed to be at the Vaux Big Picture High School in the "early afternoon" on Tuesday. Join us as we call on Ben Carson for more transparency and more resources for affordable and accessible housing! This is the same Ben Carson that suggested that the government had made things too “cozy” for poor people and who believes poverty is merely a “state of mind.” The same Ben Carson that is asking for a $6.8 billion dollar cut to the Department of Housing and Urban Development. This would be a $103,629,417 cut to programs that give thousands of Philly residents a home. Instead of budget cuts, we need to fully fund HUD to guarantee that all people who need them have safe dignified and affordable homes. Join us on Tuesday during the National Renters Week of Action to show Ben Carson how Philadelphians feel about his war on the poor. As soon as we have a time and a location we will publish it here. HUD and the federal government have been failing our communities for decades. Trump and Carson's cuts will have devastating effects on the country's most vulnerable. Senior citizens, people with disabilities, veterans and working poor people with children are all at risk of ending up in homeless shelters because of these egregious cuts.
