Join NLIHC’s Tenant Talk Live – a webinar with and for residents and resident leaders – on Tuesday, October 4 at 6 pm ET (5 pm CT, 4 pm MT, and 3 pm PT) to learn about disability justice and how it ties directly to housing advocacy. NLIHC Housing Advocacy Organizer Sidney Betancourt will be joined by disability rights advocates and leaders. NLIHC staff members will also give policy and emergency rental assistance (ERA) updates during the webinar.
NLIHC will soon release a Tenant Talk: The Intersection of Housing and Disability Rights publication. This issue will discuss how resident organizations can advocate for accessible housing. Tenant Talk will spotlight Maryland’s state legislature passing “right to counsel” and important advocacy efforts by National ADAPT. To coincide with the release of this issue, the October 4 Tenant Talk Live webinar will explore how advocating for disability rights and affordable housing are connected and why we cannot do one without the other.
Tenant Talk Live is an opportunity for renters to share their experiences and identify opportunities to make a change in their communities.
NLIHC is committed to connecting and engaging with resident leaders in new, robust ways. If you are a low-income resident and have a topic you would like to propose or if you want to be a speaker on an upcoming call/webinar, email: [email protected]
