Focus Attitude and Commitment to Excellence (FACE), a group of Street Sense artists and vendors joined the People for Fairness Coalition for a town hall style event at The Church of The Epiphany in Washington, D.C. Deliberate Face to F.A.C.E.: Is Housing a Human right? wants to bring attention to the issue of housing affordability by engaging local and national elected officials using the District of Columbia as an example and ensure that #UniversalHousing is a part of every Presidential campaign's platform.
The Panelists included D.C. citizens who are homeless and formerly homeless, as well as experts and advocates from Washington Legal Clinic for the Homeless, People for Fairness Coalition, ONE DC, and Empower DC.
The audience of housed and un-housed community members posed questions to the panelists regarding a universal human right to housing.
