We’re excited to introduce you to DCFPI’s new affordable housing and workforce development policy analyst, Eliana Golding!
Before joining us at DCFPI, Eliana worked at Housing Counseling Services where she co-coordinated an initiative to create innovative strategies for preserving affordability and preventing displacement from aging housing stock in areas East of the River. She has also worked as a tenant organizer, providing technical assistance to tenant associations going through the Tenant Opportunity to Purchase Act process.
Eliana holds a BA in Politics from Oberlin College, and is in the final stages of completing her master’s degree in Urban and Environmental Policy and Planning at Tufts University. Through her graduate studies, Eliana developed a passion for Geographic Information Systems, and is excited about bringing her skills in geographic data visualization (mapping) to inform DCFPI’s research and advocacy.
Eliana comes from a community organizing and movement building background and is passionate about policy making that is informed by community voices. Outside of work, Eliana enjoys riding her bike, gardening, and making music with her friends.
Join us in giving a warm welcome to Eliana!
