Revenue for Housing
At last week’s Community Quarterly Meeting, AM Executive Director Mike Yoder reminded attendees about the importance for people of faith to use their “moral voice” to advocate for policies and system changes that can improve the lives of the vulnerable. A wonderful opportunity to do so is being spearheaded by the Homelessness Workgroup at Tacoma’s St. Leo Catholic Church. They’ve launched a campaign called “Revenue for Housing,” and people from several local faith communities are meeting online each Monday morning to strategize how to get the Pierce County Council to pass a local sales tax to support affordable housing development.
