NLIHC will host two webinars in March on effective advocacy and policy priorities in preparation for NLIHC’s annual Capitol Hill Day on April 1. Capitol Hill Day, part of NLIHC’s 2021 Virtual Housing Policy Forum: A New Day, March 30-31, will be conducted virtually this year because of the pandemic.
The first webinar, on March 11 at 3 pm ET, will provide an introduction to effective advocacy. The NLIHC field team will cover basics of federal policymaking, key moments for advocates to be involved, allowable advocacy activities for nonprofits, and tips for effective advocacy. The session will also include a practice legislative visit. The webinar is an excellent training opportunity for those new to advocacy. Register for the March 11 webinar at: https://bit.ly/3tLGgTP
The second webinar, on March 25 at 3 pm ET, will provide an overview of NLIHC’s policy priorities and talking points. The NLIHC policy team will highlight major legislative requests and provide information that compellingly makes the case for increased federal investment in affordable homes. The field team will provide examples of how advocates can connect these priorities with their work and experiences during their legislative visits.
