#FairHousing means ensuring that everyone, no matter who they are, has access to safe, decent, and affordable housing, so that they can thrive.

Under the leadership of Chairwoman Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA-43), @HouseDemocrats passed historic levels of funding for fair housing in the #BuildBackBetterAct. Without robust fair housing enforcement, our nation's housing stock will never serve everyone adequately.

Only when we achieve the full promise of fair housing will we see economic opportunity in every neighborhood, affordable housing for all, and an end to homelessness in America. #FairHousingMonth

From Rep. Torres, representing New York

Our homecare workers should no longer be expected to live and survive on starvation wages. We must pass the #BuildBackBetterAct to invest $200 billion in homecare. This is not an expense, but rather an investment in human dignity.

There’s no labor shortage in home care. There’s a wage shortage.

In NYS, home care workers—who earn an average of 22k a year—are expected to survive on starvation wages.

Pass #FairPay4HomeCare in NYS.

Pass #BuildBackBetter in the US Senate.

Proud to stand with @1199SEIU, @CDPAANYS, @cpc_nyc, and @Spirit_SCI in the fight for home care justice.

Like Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA-7) says: poverty is a policy choice

Yes, hurt & harm is legislated. And so too can justice & healing.

Passing the #BuildBackBetterAct would expand the child tax credit, enact paid leave & advance so much more to deliver for communities who have been forced to bear the brunt of policy violence for far too long.

From Rep. Schakowsky, representing Illinois

🚨🚨🚨Columbia research: "The monthly child poverty rate increased from 12.1 percent in December 2021 to 17 percent in January 2022"

Biden Child Tax Credit expired at end of last year

3.7 million kids reenter poverty

Let’s pass #BuildBackBetterAct and get back to the positive effects of the #ChildTaxCredit and the Biden agenda for working families.

We must address systemic racism in homeownership access. The #BuildBackBetterAct would invest in making sure all first-generation homeowners have the opportunity to buy a home.

ICYMI: In our late January survey, nearly 3 in 4 Americans agreed that corporate greed was a cause of inflation (73 percent), including 44 percent who believed it to be a “major cause.”

Corporate greed is the reason Americans face rising costs and inflation. It’s time to pass the #BuildBackBetterAct so working Americans get a fair deal.

The #BuildBackBetterAct helps close the racial wealth disparity that prevents Americans from achieving their dreams of homeownership and allocates $1 billion to Native American communities, who face the highest rates of homelessness in the country.

This Valentine’s Day, we have a love note for our country 💞 It’s called the #BuildBackBetterAct which lowers drug prices, childcare costs, provides immigration protections, safe affordable housing, and helps generate green energy to combat the climate crisis and more.

66,000+ Angelenos experience homelessness, per @LAHomeless's most recent pre COIVD-19 count.
 
I voted for the #BuildBackBetterAct because Congress needs to act NOW.
 
It’s now up to the Senate to #ShowHousingLove & make the largest investment in housing infrastructure a REALITY!
