LOS ANGELES (January 12, 2022) AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) together with its affiliate organizations, the Healthy Housing Foundation and  Housing Is A Human Right  and its affinity group BLACC—the Black Leadership AIDS Crisis Coalition—is spotlighting housing affordability, gentrification and homelessness in its 2024 Kingdom Day Parade contingent with marchers carrying ‘Housing is a Civil Rights Issue’ placards and banners and a float featuring the Downtown Los Angeles skyline. The float also prominently features a poignant quote from Dr. King, who was a moving force behind the federal Fair Housing Act, which Congress enacted after King’s assassination in 1968. Dr King’s quote:


We are here today because we are tired. Tired of paying more for less.”
