Invite: Faith Communities Creating Housing Justice

The Boulder County Interfaith Leaders Caucus & the Boulder County Organizing Group of Together Colorado would like to invite you to our January action on housing justice:

Making A Place For All: Faith Communities Creating Housing Justice
Wednesday, January 29th, 6:15-8 pm
Unitarian Universalist Church of Boulder (UUCB)
5001 Pennsylvania Ave, Boulder, CO 80303

RSVP Here.

Light Snacks, child care and interpretation (for Spanish speakers) will be available.

All people in Boulder County deserve to live a life of dignity; affordable housing is key. We will be focusing specifically on mobile homes as an important part of the housing panorama in the county, including the challenges faced by residents, and the critical role that our local and state government can play in protecting the dignity of all members of our community.

We’ll be asking the city of Lafayette to implement a Package of Protections for residents of their seven mobile home parks, and Rep. Edie Hooton to highlight 2020 state legislative opportunities.

Join us and stand up for housing justice in Boulder County!

RSVP Here.

Sincerely,
The Together Colorado Boulder County Interfaith Leaders Caucus
