NLIHC will host the next session of “Tenant Talk Live” – a webinar with and for renter and resident leaders – today, April 17, at 6 pm ET. Today’s webinar, “Policy: It Ain’t Always Pretty…or Easy,” will focus on the fundamentals of effectively influencing public policy and help tenants understand their role in policy formulation. Join NLIHC staff and advocates as they discuss the nuts-and-bolts of effective policy advocacy, including how to draw on one’s own experiences to influence politicians, identify your group’s messaging strengths, and amplify your voice through the media.

During the webinar, NLIHC staff will be joined by Kevin Cronin, the director of member services and industry support at Housing Oregon, a state association of community development corporations and homeless service providers. Kevin is a dedicated community organizer and activist with extensive experience in housing advocacy and policy. He offers the perspective of an organizer as well as a person who has been impacted by housing instability and who understands the challenges faced by tenants across the country. The call will also be joined by Marlo Fields, a housing specialist at Wisconsin Community Action Program Association (WISCAP). Marlo brings with him a history of passionately advocating for working class values and anti-poverty initiatives. Having grown up in a single-parent working-class household, Marlo knows firsthand the necessity of stable housing for ensuring the well-being of families and children. He is a former Peace Corps volunteer, having served as an English teacher in rural southwest China, and has also worked for U.S. Congressmen Ron Kind and Mark Pocan, managing housing- and HUD-related constituent casework for the latter.
