HUNDREDS DENOUNCED TRUMP’S CALLOUS, DANGEROUS AND DESTRUCTIVE PLAN TO CUT $6.2 BILLION FROM HUD BUDGET
Today, April 20th, a number of rally participants were arrested protesting President Trump’s proposed federal housing cuts. In an act of civil disobedience, the group refused to stop protesting beyond police barricades during a major demonstration at 26 Federal Plaza. Trump’s proposal to cut $6.2 billion in federal housing funds would decimate programs that help millions of low-income Americans keep a roof over their heads. Community Voices Heard (CVH), a community activist organization started by single mothers on public assistance in NYC more than two decades ago, was at the forefront of the #NoCuts Coalition movement this week. This included a meeting and press conference earlier in the week w/ U.S. Sen. Charles Schumer and a rally with several dozen grassroots, civic and labor organizations.
