Housing Activists Rally Against Massive Cuts to HUD Proposed by Trump

H06 hud protest

Tenants and housing rights activists converged Wednesday on Washington, D.C., to protest President Trump’s proposed $7.4 billion cuts to HUD—the Department of Housing and Urban Development—which oversees public housing in the United States. Among those at the march was Massachusetts Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren: “We believe that hardworking people should not be kicked out of their homes so that big banks and billionaires can make more in profits. And we will fight back. This is about dignity. This is about who we are as a country and who we are as a people.”

The Center on Budget and Policy Priorities estimates Trump’s budget proposal would end vouchers for about 250,000 households.
