NLIHC has released a Spanish edition of Tenant Talk: Housing is Built with Ballots (La Vivienda Se Construye con Boletas), a publication dedicated to low-income residents and their allies. This newest edition focuses on voter registration and mobilization during the 2020 presidential election and the major party housing platforms. It also describes tools and resources available from NLIHC’s Our Homes, Our Votes project for resident leaders and nonprofits for nonpartisan voter and candidate engagement during this critical election year and beyond.
This Tenant Talk issue delves into such topics as the history of voter suppression in the U.S. and its impact on low-income residents; voter engagement tools and resources; state-specific voting information including laws, restrictions, key dates, and deadlines; the new NLIHC-led Our Homes, Our Votes Housing Providers Council; how the affordable housing and homelessness crisis continues to shape the 2020 presidential election; the DNC and RNC party platforms and their approaches to affordable housing; and many others. The issue also discusses state and local rental assistance programs during COVID-19 and provides information about the national eviction moratorium announced by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) effective September 1, 2020.

Tenant Talk Live! provides opportunities for residents and resident leaders to connect with NLIHC and one another, share best practices, and become more involved in influencing federal housing policies and to lead in their community. NLIHC is hosting these webinars every month. The next session is on November 2 at 6 pm ET. Register at: https://bit.ly/3dNekGP
