Congresswoman Adams recognizes that the importance of housing is based on the understanding that the issue affects each and every one of us, whether you are rich or poor, and regardless of your ethnicity. Everyone in this country deserves a decent, affordable place to call home. By making housing affordable, Congress can position individuals to become homeowners, who will undoubtedly strengthen the middle class and the overall economy.
She has continuously worked to protect home buyers by voting against measures that remove housing counseling and important disclosure requirements when receiving a mortgage. She also supports measures that will promote affordable housing for some of our most vulnerable communities including seniors, low income families, and veterans.

This January in Congress has been unlike any other.
On the first Wednesday, an insurrection caused in no small part by the outgoing President breached the Capitol for the first time in over 200 years. On the second Wednesday, we voted for an impeachment necessitated by the attack the week before.
On the third Wednesday, we celebrated the inauguration of a new President and a historic Vice President, but the day was very different due to the pandemic. The Biden-Harris Administration got to work immediately to improve our response to COVID-19.
