Honor Sen. Sherrod Brown and other NLIHC 2021 Housing Leadership Awards Recipients

Make a contribution to NLIHC in honor of 2021 Housing Leadership Award Honoree Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH), chair of the Senate Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs Committee. Senator Brown will receive a 2021 Edward W. Brooke Housing Leadership Award for his many years of fighting for racial and social justice, voting rights, and affordable housing, and for his exceptional leadership in Congress to address to the housing and homelessness crisis during the 2020 coronavirus pandemic. This award is named for Senator Edward Brooke (R-MA), who championed low-income housing as a U.S. senator and later as chair of the NLIHC board of directors. Donate to NLIHC in Senator Brown’s honor as an individual or as an organization.
