Campaign to Host National Press Club Event on January 16, Register Now!

The Opportunity Starts at Home campaign will host an event, “Broadening the Movement: Housing as a National Priority in 2020,” at the National Press Club in Washington D.C. on January 16 from 1:00-2:30 pm ET. The early months of 2020 will be a pivotal moment that shapes the national agenda. The president will give his yearly State of the Union Address and publish his fourth federal budget proposal. At the same time, voters will start heading to the polls to decide the Democratic presidential nominee. For too long, the critical importance of safe, decent, accessible, and affordable housing has been overlooked as a top national priority. But, as the audience will learn during this event, powerful new constituencies are mobilizing, and elected officials are responding to an unprecedented mandate from the public to enact bold solutions.

The event will feature senior leaders from the campaign’s multi-sector Steering Committee:

  • Clarence E. Anthony, CEO and executive director, National League of Cities
  • Fatima Goss Graves, president and CEO, National Women’s Law Center
  • DeAnna Hoskins, president and CEO, JustLeadershipUSA
  • Mike Koprowski, national director, Opportunity Starts at Home Campaign
  • Sister Donna Markham, president and CEO, Catholic Charities USA
  • Dr. Megan Sandel, MD MPH, principal investigator with Children’s HealthWatch and associate professor of pediatrics at Boston University
  • Diane Yentel, president and CEO, National Low Income Housing Coalition

The event is free and open to the public; please attend. Also, please help spread the event invitation to your respective networks. Learn more about the event and register at:
