Join Today’s (4/1) “Tenant Talk Live” on Legislative Advocacy for Tenant Protections

Join NLIHC’s “Tenant Talk Live,” a meeting geared towards tenant and resident leaders, today, April 1, at 6 pm ET. As legislative sessions wrap up nationwide, advocates for tenant protections are ready to share the insights they have gained during their advocacy journey. In this month’s “Tenant Talk Live,” attendees will have the opportunity to hear from Mindy Woods, a member of both the Resident Action Project (RAP) and the NLIHC Board of Directors. Mindy will share her firsthand experiences advocating during Washington State’s recent legislative session and discuss the ongoing struggle for tenant protections in her state and the path forward for RAP and tenant organizers across the country. Register here to join today’s “Tenant Talk Live.”

Mindy Woods is a Desert Storm navy veteran and single mother. She draws on her own and her son’s lived experiences of homelessness, poverty, and other challenges to lift up her community. Mindy serves on multiple boards and commissions in the State of Washington, as well as on a national board, and works as the human services program manager for the City of Edmonds, a position she pushed to create. She is a founding member of Washington State’s Resident Action Project, a statewide, resident-led network of people who have experienced housing insecurity and injustice and who organize and use civic engagement, education, and storytelling to bring about policy change. Mindy approaches all her work with an eye toward equity, and she is a tireless housing and social justice organizer who believes that everyone should have access to an affordable, safe, and healthy place to live in a thriving community of their choice.

“Tenant Talk Live” meetings are held the first Monday of every month at 6 pm ET.
