Membership Month 2019

September is Membership Month at NLIHC! This year we are celebrating the impact and relevance of NLIHC members in the ongoing movement for economic justice and social change. The theme is “Join the Movement” as NLIHC has always led the movement for affordable homes for those most in need. To highlight the breadth of our membership, Membership Month will showcase the many different kinds of advocates who support our work and build the momentum of NLIHC campaigns.

NLIHC members form an impressive network of committed housing and social justice advocates across the nation. With over 1,000 dedicated individual and organizational members nationwide, we are confident that together, with sustained advocacy, we can end homelessness and housing poverty in America once and for all.

NLIHC is committed to our members! We ensure they have a voice in the Coalition and the support they need to make the case for federal affordable housing solutions. Members also receive benefits like a hard copy of the NLIHC Advocate’s Guide, an opportunity to provide input to NLIHC’s policy priorities, and a discount at our annual Housing Policy Forum. 

By recruiting new NLIHC members this month, our Coalition for affordable homes will grow even stronger!
