On November 8, 2009, ACLU clients Glenda Smith and Esther Sharps testified before the United Nations Special Rapporteur on the Right to Adequate Housing, Ms. Raquel Rolnick, during the National Town Hall Forum she held in Washington, DC at the conclusion of her 18-day official mission to the United States to investigate housing rights violations. This was the first official visit to the U.S by a U.N. Special Rapporteur on Housing. Glenda Smith and Esther Sharps are public housing residents in Annapolis, MD and plaintiffs in the ACLUs case, Sharps v. The Housing Authority of the City of Annapolis. They testified about discriminatory banning policies that tear families apart.
