For those who might have missed NLIHC’s first two webinar offerings of the 2016 Voterization series, not to worry. Due to popular demand, both sessions will be presented again in early May. “Understanding and Overcoming the Challenges of Voter Registration,” will be presented on Wednesday, May 4, at 2:00pm ET and “Educating Voters and Engaging Candidates on Housing Issues,” will be presented on Tuesday, May 10, at 1:00pm ET.
NLIHC’s voter registration webinar will provide an overview of the Voterization project and provide tips and best practices for voter registration drives. The webinar will also cover important legal considerations for 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations to consider when conducting voter engagement activities.
The webinar on voter education and candidate engagement will provide detailed information on creating voter guides, participating in candidate forums, and getting candidates to take positions on issues through candidate questionnaires.
Throughout the 2016 election season, NLIHC will offer webinars and resources to train advocates and service providers on how to carry out non-partisan voter engagement efforts with low income residents and their allies. Strong low-income resident participation in the 2016 elections is essential to get candidates to address the issue of affordable rental housing in their campaigns.
Both webinars will provide closed captioning.
