The conventions are over. Candidates up and down the ballot are on the campaign trail making promises and asking for votes. Let’s join forces to make sure that affordable housing is on their agenda.
Join NLIHC, Make Room, and organizations across the nation to send 1 million messages to Congress to get housing affordability on the agenda by Election Day. Here are three ways you can support the campaign:
- Join us. Sign your organization onto the national letter or sign up as an individual.
- Raise the profile of affordable housing issues locally. The Make Room Advocacy Toolkit includes sample letters to the editor, emails, e-newsletters, social media messages, website promos, and questions to ask members of Congress at town hall meetings. It also features best practices for meeting with your elected officials one-on-one or inviting them to tour affordable housing developments.
- Spread the word. Encourage other national, state, and local organizations, elected officials, and advocates who believe that housing is a critical resource for our communities to join the campaign.
Our nation is facing a housing affordability crisis of record proportions. Too many Americans cannot make rent, and Congress has done little to ease this growing burden.
Every day until Election Day, together let’s deliver one clear message to Congress: Americans cannot afford places to live and need help. We hope you will join us. We cannot achieve our ambitious goal of 1 million messages without you.
