"Two of the issues I have been most focused on this Congress are addressing the housing crisis and our climate emergency. These priorities are inextricably linked and both disproportionally impact Black, Indigenous and other communities of color here in Oregon and in other parts of the country. In fact, one of the people I have worked most closely on these issues with is Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez from New York.
While our Congressional districts may be thousands of miles apart, housing and environmental justice is a priority in both and we have worked together in the halls of Congress to address these issues and fight for restorative justice."
Join Representatives Earl Blumenauer (OR-3) and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY-14) for a joint town hall on the ongoing fight for housing and environmental justice. The Members of Congress will provide an update on their respective legislation and their joint efforts to get Congress to take action on these critical issues. There will be the opportunity for constituents to ask the Members of Congress questions following the presentation.
