Our Homes, Our Votes is NLIHC’s nonpartisan campaign to increase voter participation among low-income renters and to educate candidates about housing solutions. The Our Homes, Our Votes: 2022 biweekly webinar series features experts with frontline election experience who will walk through every step of voter and candidate engagement and support housing organizations’ nonpartisan election efforts. Join next week’s (May 2) webinar to learn about legal considerations for 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations as they plan their voter and candidate engagement work!
Nonprofit organizations, including housing justice nonprofits, can and should participate in nonpartisan voter and candidate engagement campaigns. To do so with confidence, organizations should be familiar with the laws that govern nonprofits’ election-related work. The next Our Homes, Our Votes webinar, “Legal Considerations for Nonprofit Organizations,” will address frequently asked questions, clear up misconceptions, and provide resources for 501(c)(3) nonprofits as they get started on their campaigns. The webinar will take place on Monday, May 2, from 2:30 to 3:30 pm ET. Registration for the webinar can be found here. Tim Mooney, senior counsel with the Bolder Advocacy program of the Alliance for Justice, will provide a comprehensive training on the legal landscape for 501(c)3 nonprofits that are launching voter and candidate engagement activities. Gabby Ross, housing advocacy organizer at NLIHC, will discuss considerations for organizations that receive federal funding.
