NLIHC invites advocates to participate in our hybrid Capitol Hill Day on Thursday, March 23. Participants will have the opportunity to meet with their members of Congress to urge them to oppose funding cuts to affordable housing and homelessness programs, expand resources for these vital programs, advance anti-racist policies, and support legislation that would improve the lives of millions of low-income people. Advocates can register to attend a February 28 webinar that will help prepare for Capitol Hill Day advocacy here. Capitol Hill Day is part of NLIHC’s Housing Policy Forum 2023: Onward to Housing Justice, which will take place on March 21-23 at the Hilton Capitol Hill Hotel in Washington, D.C.

In preparation for Capitol Hill Day, NLIHC will be hosting a webinar on February 28 from 4 to 5 pm ET that will cover our policy priorities and provide an overview of what to expect when meeting with members of Congress during Hill Day meetings. Staff from Housing Narrative Lab will also join this year’s webinar to share how advocates can incorporate their own stories and experiences into their advocacy to create powerful narratives that make the case for federal resources for affordable housing and homelessness programs. Register for the webinar here.
