NLIHC will offer a podcast on “The Role of Housing Providers in Registering and Mobilizing Voters” on February 20 at 3:00 p.m. ET. Register for this podcast and NLIHC’s entire 15-month “Third Thursdays at Three” webinar and podcast series on nonpartisan voter and candidate engagement, free to the public, at: https://tinyurl.com/y3t9gfr2

The February session will provide a review of how housing providers can register and mobilize their residents, with specific considerations for public housing agencies (PHAs) and operators of Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) housing. Presenters will also explore ideas on how PHAs can conduct voter registration with Housing Choice Voucher households who are often harder to connect with during registration drives because the households are scattered.

NLIHC provides an array of nonpartisan resources, tools, and training on increasing voter registration and turnout among low-income renters and on engaging candidates leading up to the 2020 elections, including these webinars and podcasts covering many facets of voter and candidate engagement, featuring experts and advocates with frontline experience.

The presentations take place at 3:00 p.m. ET on the third Thursday of each month. All sessions will be recorded and posted to the Our Homes, Our Votes: 2020 website for those who cannot attend the live broadcasts. The full list of webinar topics:
