What: Vigil to Call for Housing in Waynesboro
When: Sunday, January 22 at 3 p.m.
Where: Embrace Community Center, 932 Fir Street, Waynesboro, VA
Waynesboro, Va. — Virginia Organizing, Embrace Community Center, and the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Waynesboro will hold a vigil on Sunday, January 22 at 3 p.m. outside the Embrace Community Center. The vigil will be part of a coordinated network of actions happening across the state organized by the Virginia Interfaith Center for Public Policy.
Three out of ten households in Virginia pay too much for housing, and the cost for both rent and home ownership have gone up exponentially in recent years. Waynesboro deeply feels the state’s housing crisis — from the long waitlist for housing assistance to having one of the country’s highest eviction rates. The groups will be calling on our state legislators to allocate critical funding to affordable housing projects like Virginia’s Housing Trust Fund, Housing Stability Fund, and Eviction Reduction Program.
