In 2022, we used civil rights testing to expose housing and employment discrimination. We empowered our neighbors to know and defend their fair housing rights. And we championed accessibility in the local community. Our work is critical to the advancement of equal access and opportunity in the Greater Washington, D.C. region and across the country, and we couldn’t do it without each and every one of our members. Thank you! Explore the report to learn more about our impact.
