This is a list of current LEDC campaigns.
LEDC helps tenants take the first step toward preserving affordability and preventing displacement by organizing tenant associations and negotiating with building owners and management for improved conditions. LEDC assists residents in asserting their rights to fair and decent housing. We provide technical assistance which helps residents work together in documenting and reporting code violations and talking with management. By helping tenants improve conditions, LEDC prevents building owners from using this strategy to displace residents and helps tenants retain their affordable housing.
Small businesses across the nation are the backbone of our economy and will lead us out of the economic crisis with their relentless spirit of entrepreneurship. Immigrant small business owners are creating jobs, stimulating the economy, and have become a part of the fabric of our national and local business communities. Small businesses in the DC metro area, whether immigrant or non-immigrant, are sustained by the purchases of immigrants and through the immigrant workforce. The legalization of undocumented immigrants through comprehensive immigration reform would create jobs, generate revenue, raise wages, and stimulate our economy toward a fuller recovery.
