Equipping Latinos and other DC-area residents with the skills and financial tools to create a better future for their families and communities.
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 two active 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.
