Message to the DC Mayor on Homelessness

Project Date:

Luminous Intervention supported the Fair Budget Coalition's campaign for housing for people and families who are homeless in D.C.  This projection took place just outside the school where Mayor Gray was giving his State of the City address to D.C. audiences.  The projection was one of a number of actions that the Fair Budget Coalition coordinated to put pressure on the Mayor to more adequately address the needs of the homeless in the nation's capital. 

D.C. Press covered the action in the following articles:
