The Our Homes, Our Votes: 2022 webinar series features experts with frontline election experience to walk through every step of voter and candidate engagement activities and support housing organizations’ nonpartisan election efforts. The final webinar in the series, “Holding Candidates to Their Campaign Promises,” will be held today, November 14, at 2:30 pm ET. Register for the webinar here.
Elected officials are most attentive to the concerns of their constituents who vote. Now that Election Day has passed, housing organizations should evaluate the success of their voter engagement efforts and demonstrate that low-income renters are a significant, active voting bloc in their communities – a constituency to whom elected officials must be responsive. Panelists will discuss opportunities to harness the momentum of nonpartisan voter engagement campaigns and hold elected officials accountable to their campaign promises, establish relationships with new staff, and ensure that candidates who championed affordable housing on the campaign trail maintain that commitment when their terms begin. The panel will feature Neisha McGee, manager of advocacy, engagement and mobilization at Independent Sector; Molly Jacobson, senior policy analyst at the Virginia Housing Alliance; and Cristin Langworthy, community engagement and government relations coordinator at the Housing Network of Rhode Island.
