Each year the Council’s Policy Team works with Congress and the administration to advocate for human rights and social justice. Our 2019 policy priorities
, which serve as the foundation of our work at the federal level, will aim to achieve four goals:
- Strengthen Current Health Programs & Establish a Universal Health Plan
- Reform the Behavioral Health System
- Guarantee Affordable Housing
- Reform the Criminal Justice System
Our work balances the need to ensure the current system can respond to immediate needs, while also working to achieve the larger, structural changes needed to ensure full access to health care and housing for all. The Council will continue to support the Health Care for the Homeless community in their local and state advocacy activities, and unify our community’s voice in public policy.
