Our Homes, Our Votes: 2024 Webinar Series Launches Today (4/15)!

NLIHC’s Our Homes, Our Votes campaign is a nonpartisan initiative to boost voter turnout among low-income renters and elevate housing as an election issue. To educate housing advocates, tenant leaders, and direct service providers on nonpartisan ways to engage voters in their communities, the campaign hosts a webinar series in major federal election years. The Our Homes, Our Votes: 2024 webinar series will provide resources, guidance, and inspiration for organizations and individuals seeking to launch or strengthen their own nonpartisan voter and candidate engagement initiatives. The series will launch today (April 15) at 2:30 pm ET. Register for the webinar series here!

The Our Homes, Our Votes: 2024 kickoff webinar will provide an overview of the connection between housing justice and political participation, the effectiveness of nonpartisan voter engagement campaigns, and why housing and homelessness advocates should get involved in the 2024 election cycle. The webinar will feature Diane Yentel, president and CEO of NLIHC; Dr. Bambie Hayes-Brown, president and CEO of Georgia Advancing Communities Together; and Courtney Cooperman, project manager of Our Homes, Our Votes. The webinar will also include a presentation by Gwen Stembridge, education and partnerships coordinator at Nonprofit VOTE, on the newly released “2024 Nonprofit Power Report,” and a special message from Representative Nikema Williams (D-GA), lead sponsor of the “Unhoused VOTE Act.”

The webinar dates and topics are listed below. All webinars will be held from 2:30 to 3:30 pm ET. For full descriptions of each session, visit: www.ourhomes-ourvotes.org/webinars-2024
