My CPA public hearing proposal and presentation was as follows:

Peace Be Unto You,

I’m Hasson Rashid, I currently serve on two community boards, the Cambridge Continuum of Care (CoC), the Alliance of Cambridge Tenants (ACT), and I’m former board member of CCTV, where I currently produce and host two TV programs. I also hold a Master of Science Degree in Human Service Studies. As you all know or remember, I came before you all during the first 2016 convening of the CPA committee for funding proposals, with a request funding for the creation of a video/ film documentary on the subject of Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing (AFFH).

Once again, as you all know and may be aware of , AFFH is an integral element within the Continuum of Affordable Housing. It is all about enforcing the right of the underclass ( housing discrimination against racial and ethnic minorities). My documentary project will highlight areas under this umbrella such as the Fair Housing Act and Sections of the Civil Rights Act, Section 109 of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974, and Section 282 of the Cranston-Gonzalez National Affordable Housing Act.

Finally, the lack of affordable housing for the poorest peoples in our country is the root cause of homelessness and housing poverty in America. I’m present here today, in addition to the last time I appeared before the CPA Funding Committee 2016, to make a difference with my project request, that if funded will works towards the goal of contributing to ending homelessness, and closing the vicious affordable housing gap, once and for all. Thank you.

Yours In Peace,
Mr. Hasson J. Rashid
