The Opportunity Starts at Home multi-sector affordable homes campaign recently released a new multi-sector fact sheet on its website explaining the connections between gender equity and stable, affordable housing. Research shows fair access to safe, accessible, and affordable housing in integrated neighborhoods is vital to the well-being of women and girls.
In total, the campaign has posted 15 multi-sector fact sheets to its website. Each fact sheet compiles landmark research to help policymakers, opinion leaders, and the public understand the deep connections between housing and many other national priorities, from healthcare to education to economic growth. Housing advocates are encouraged to download these fact sheets to help them reach out to potential allies in other fields to make the case for cross-sector collaboration. To broaden the movement for affordable homes, we must ensure allies in other sectors fully appreciate the extent to which housing influences their own priorities and goals.
