This summer, Habitat for Humanity of Washington, D.C. (DC Habitat) is teaming up once again with the city’s LGBTQ community for a second Rainbow Build event!
We’ll be holding several volunteer build days during the week of June 13th specifically for LGBTQ group participation, a special Saturday build day, a kick-off happy hour event in early June, and a fundraising campaign from March through June.
The purpose of this event, held in partnership with Capital Pride, is to bring groups together to build a Habitat home, and to raise awareness on the issue of affordable housing in the District. Given the success of last year’s event, we’re excited to bring Rainbow Build back to DC for a second year in a row, and to engage more members of the DC LGBTQ community in our cause.
Affordable housing is an issue that affects us all. DC Habitat believes that everyone deserves a decent place to live, and we’re working to make this a reality in the District. We recognize the complex relationship between the issues of affordable housing and LGBTQ rights, and we’d like to raise awareness for these topics. By hosting annual Rainbow Builds, we can create a stronger platform for discussion, as well as lasting partnerships towards sustainable change and improvement.
You can become a part of our second Rainbow Build a number of ways. We will be holding a happy hour fundraiser in early June (details to follow), as well as an ongoing campaign on Crowdrise. During the build days, June 18-20, you can come out as an individual, with a group, or as part of a corporate sponsorship team.
