At CNHED, we know the importance of a home. It brings comfort and health to a life. Submit your poem, rap or spoken-word piece that shows what home is for you. We encourage everyone young and old to share their piece as we work to meet the need for Housing in DC. 

The first place winner in each category will be asked to explain their art piece during the rally.

Submissions are due March 22.

There are multiple ways you can get involved with CNHED’s Housing for All Rally. 

One of the most impactful things you can do is simply be present. Register to attend the rally on April 4th to advocate for Housing for All.

Planning to attend but still want to do more? We’re always in need of volunteers! Students may be able to earn service hours for their time. 


Whether it’s through social media, email, or in-person, there are multiple ways you can spread the word about the rally. Don’t forget your yellow shirt!

There’s more to this push than just a Rally. Two weeks after, on April 14th, CNHED will host an Advocacy Day at the D.C. council. Join us!
