Thanks to all who joined us to Unite for Housing at the Homes for All rally on May 6! More than 200 people attended — including housing champions Governor Walz and Lieutenant Governor Flanagan! We can still feel the energy, and hear the voices, that filled the rotunda. We're grateful to everyone who shared their stories and called for swift action on housing before the session ends.
