Taking place on March 19-21 in Washington D.C., NLIHC’s Housing Policy Forum 2024: An Unwavering Path Forward to Housing Justice will feature a wide array of speakers and a range of sessions covering all aspects of affordable housing policy and advocacy, including a plenary session on strategic organizing for housing justice. Register for Forum today!

Building Power: How to Organize for Housing Justice     Tenant leaders and their allies are organizing for housing justice in communities of all sizes, regions, and political stripes. From coast to coast and urban to rural environments, in public housing and unsubsidized buildings, and in states of every political make-up, organizers are generating momentum and achieving major victories. Some organizers are focused on achieving building-level changes, while others are exerting political pressure on city councils, state legislatures, or federal agencies and Congress. In this plenary session, organizers will share insights gained from organizing in their own communities, as well as broader principles and practices that can be applied in any campaign for housing justice.

In addition to plenary sessions, the 2024 Forum will feature discussions with Representative Maxwell Frost (D-FL) about his plans for promoting housing affordability and Representative Jimmy Gomez (D-CA) about transformative legislation that would create permanent tools to prevent evictions and establish a new renter’s tax credit. The Forum will open with a keynote discussion with acclaimed civil rights attorney and scholar Sherrilyn Ifill and close with a keynote address by renowned author and journalist Dr. Jelani Cobb.   Additional speakers and a full schedule will be announced in the coming weeks.
