13-2 Housing Is Built With Ballots: Become an Our Homes, Our Votes Affiliate!

State, local, and tenant groups are invited to become a part of Our Homes, Our Votes as affiliate organizations. Joining Our Homes, Our Votes will strengthen our movement and tie together nonpartisan local and national voter engagement initiatives across the country.

Our Homes, Our Votes affiliates receive guidance and assistance from NLIHC staff in developing and administering local efforts and have opportunities for peer learning. Affiliates help us increase our awareness of local- and state-level organizing throughout the nation, identify which organizations can potentially benefit from campaign support, and raise the profile of housing and homelessness organizations’ election work.

Affiliates have permission to use the Our Homes, Our Votes logos and images on co-branded materials, and the efforts of affiliate organizations may be featured in the biweekly Our Homes, Our Votes newsletters that describe important local work of tenant associations, housing providers, community organizations, and national partners. Best of all, affiliates can request swag: free t-shirts, stickers, and posters are available!

Any organization is welcome to participate, and there is no cost for being an affiliate.
Affiliate organizations need only:

  • Commit to advancing housing issues in the election.
  • Work to promote voter registration and turnout among low-income voters.
  • Keep all activities nonpartisan and not endorse candidates for office. Note that endorsing ballot measures is acceptable nonpartisan activity.

Joining couldn’t be easier.
