Campaign’s Racial Equity Working Group Updates National Policy Agenda

The Opportunity Starts at Home multi-sector affordable homes campaign released an updated national policy agenda to reflect racial equity more strongly within the campaign’s policy priorities. The updated policy agenda explains how the campaign’s top priorities would advance racial equity and how racial disparities in housing impact other sectors, from healthcare and education to food security.OSAH_policy

The policy agenda acknowledges the impact COVID-19 has had on renters with the lowest incomes across the nation, particularly BIPOC renters, and includes revised goals to reflect the robust solutions needed. These updates were made in consultation with the campaign’s Racial Equity Working Group, which includes leading national organizations from housing, education, health, food security, faith, civil rights, child welfare, social work, criminal justice, and more.
