YC Spotlight: “#CASA is Home”

Yesterday hundreds of New Yorkers marched on Washington to protest the $6.2 billion Trump proposed to cut from the Department of Housing and Urban Development. If passed, this budget cut would leave approximately 25,000 New Yorkers homeless.

This week, our YC Spotlight provides coverage of a recent CASA gathering, where tenants and elected officials in the Bronx discussed gentrification and other issues that are forcing New Yorkers out of their homes. Plus, see Youth CASA member Dilson Hernandez’s powerful spoken word performance, which was meant to inspire members of the community to take action and fight for their rights.

Watch now.
