Take action and make it clear that President Trump’s massive proposed cuts to affordable housing programs must be defeated. Sign up and begin planning today to participate in the 2018 Our Homes, Our Voices National Housing Week of Action, May 1-8, and join the thousands who will make our voices heard!
Federal investments in proven affordable housing solutions benefit us all. But at a time when we should be increasing those investments, President Trump has again proposed slashing vital HUD and USDA resources that house low income people and revitalize distressed communities. Join the movement in support of affordable homes during this year’s Our Homes, Our Voices National Housing Week of Action!
You can start planning an event in your community for the Housing Week of Action by going to www.ourhomes-ourvoices.org. There you will find guides for how to plan different types of activities and sample materials and content for you to use, including talking points, tweets, op-eds, press releases, social media images and posters. When you have planned an event, NLIHC will feature it on the website, directing supporters to you and inspiring others to plan activities.
NLIHC’s 2018 Housing Policy Forum: Building the Movement in Washington DC, March 19-21, will also help you prepare. In addition to the latest updates on federal housing policy, the Forum will offer several panels and workshops on effective state and local organizing strategies and share tools and ideas to help you plan a successful event for this year’s Our Homes, Our Voices Housing Week of Action.
The need for affordable housing in communities across the country is greater than ever, while threats to funding for programs that make affordable housing possible are more severe than they have been in decades.
It’s time to act - to raise our voices not only to protect vital affordable housing programs, but to expand them so that everyone, especially those with the lowest incomes, has an affordable place to call home.
Join us from May 1-8 for the Our Homes, Our Voices National Housing Week of Action.
