Ashley Nguyen started this petition to D.C. Lawmakers and

Did you know that over 7.5% of veterans in D.C. are homeless? So many people who dedicated their lives to protecting us and our country come back to face struggles like mental illness and unemployment. We are seeking to change this problem by advocating for new laws and ideas that successfully help veterans adapt back to a healthy lifestyle. We are hoping to introduce new concepts that will help veterans more, such as community housing, which helps veterans create a safe environment with others where they can learn how to maintain a healthy living space. 

Many bills regarding veterans and homelessness have been introduced but have not passed the House or the Senate. Through this petition, we wish to grab the attention of our local legislators so that they can take a closer look at the bills that have been introduced in the Congress, specifically the Homeless Veterans Legal Services Act and the Helping Homeless Veterans Act of 2019. We hope that some of these bills are able to pass.

Thank you for reading and we hope you support the cause!
-Ashley, Lydie, and Caroline
