WRAP [Western Regional Advocacy Project ] is proud to announce the release of our 2010 Without Housing Report Update.

Download It Here

It comes at a critical juncture for housing policy in this country as millions of Americans are homeless and tens of millions more are on the brink of economic collapse.

The updated report focuses public attention back on the #1 reason for the housing mess: the Federal Government’s divestment in affordable housing programs and deregulation of the housing market.

Most importantly, it helps people understand the complex issues fueling the crisis and provides a framework for turning the situation around.

In the next few weeks WRAP will be launching a housing rights campaign that builds off the update and these demands.

If you or your organization is interested in joining or learning more about the campaign, call Paul or Michael at 415-621-2533.

And please, support our work by donating now!

To order hard copies of the update, send a check payable to:

Western Regional Advocacy Project
2940 16th St., Suite 200-2
San Francisco, CA 94103

1 Report = $10
10+ = $8/each
50+ = $5/each

P.S. A Spanish version is on the way soon!
