Peace Be Unto You,

Hello Everybody, I'm Hasson Rashid, I'm a board member of the Alliance of Cambridge Tenants (ACT), and a member of it's Homelessness Advocacy and Outreach Committee. Today, I'm concerned about what happens to 105 Windsor Street. What will the city allow it to be used for? I would like to see the City of Cambridge convert this building facility and property, into supportive housing for the homeless. It is absurd for the City of Cambridge to let land and buildings, set unused in Cambridge, while scores of homeless peoples live on the streets, who are disportionately black.

The city has unsued vacant property, and high priority homelessness problems. The city should put vacant property to use, by converting 105 Windsor Street into supportive housing space for the homeless, of whom a disportion of are black.
My hope today is that the city doesn't pass 105 Windsor Street on without the homeless in mind.

In some cities across the United States the city governments, are donating their unsed vacant properties to addressing homelessness crisis, for nothing at all, or as little as one dollar. I say donate the city's unused vacant property(s) to the "Alliance of Cambridge Tenants (ACT) Homelessness Advocacy and Outreach Committee." ACT can then prepared for it's use as supportive housing for Cambridge's homelessness sector and mosaic. ACT's past community work testfies that ACT has compassion for peoples in need.
