WASHINGTON, D.C. — PIX11’s Monica Morales is headed to the White House Thursday with Douglass Houses Tenant Association Carmen Quionones and HUD Regional Director Lynne Patton.

Quionones, who is attending a Black History Month celebration tonight, is on a mission to meet with President Trump to talk federal funding for public housing.
