Housing Campaigns

Do you want to turn your one voice for affordable housing into a thousand voices? Get to know people in your community who care about affordable housing and join a campaign today to fight for your neighbors and renters citywide.



LEDC works closely with tenants and partner organizations to develop campaigns in support of affordable housing in the District of Columbia. Campaigns focus on city-wide issues, motivating and mobilizing tenants to become involved with campaigns related to preserving and increasing the affordable housing stock in the city.
 
There are three campaigns currently in progress:

Past campaigns include the Housing Conditions campaign, which after years of work successfully led to the creation of the DC Housing Conditions Court. Through the Court, renters in the District of Columbia can sue landlords for refusing to fix housing code violations.

LEDC continues to coordinate advocacy and organizing to ensure quality housing conditions.

To join a campaign, contact our Bilingual Tenant Organizer, Robert Wohl, at (202) 540-7419 or rwohl@ledcmetro.org.
