Two Americas

Today, the selfish, other America is bullying everyone. The shutdown of the government is hurting the country, eliminating essential services, putting hard working and dedicated federal workers into financial distress. We who live in public and subsidized housing are also facing threats to our homes and our food.

VAWA rule protects housing for victims

HUD rules now protect the housing rights of all persons who have been victims of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking. The Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) and this rule seek to assure the basic human right to be free from violence and abuse. Victims cannot be discriminated against on the basis of any protected characteristics (including race, color, religion, sex or sexual orientation, disability, familial status, national origin, or age).
