In the midst of neighborhood gentrification, D.C.’s Wah Luck House has remained an affordable home and community anchor for generations of Chinatown residents, with ties throughout Montgomery County and the Greater Washington area.
Join us for a wide-ranging discussion with Wah Luck House residents about the intersection of health and housing amid the challenges of a global pandemic and rising anti-Asian sentiment and violence.
Speakers will include representatives from the White House, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, the Wah Luck House, and local agencies supporting seniors and Asian communities.
