NLIHC’s Our Homes, Our Votes 2020 nonpartisan voter and candidate engagement effort is offering NLIHC members and partners a webinar, Let’s Get It Started, on July 31 at 1:00 p.m. ET. The session will provide an overview of the Our Homes, Our Votes: 2020 project and what you can do to engage voters and candidates in the presidential, state and local elections. Registration is now open.
Learn why it is imperative for housing organizations and other nonprofits to be involved in voter and candidate engagement, how you can make a difference in elections in a nonpartisan way, how you can use a comprehensive toolkit of voter and candidate engagement resources, and how NLIHC partners in the early voting states like Iowa and New Hampshire are already reaching out to the presidential candidates to ensure they address the issue of housing affordability.
Speakers will include Diane Yentel, NLIHC president and CEO; Joey Lindstrom, NLIHC manager of field organizing; Elissa Margolin, Housing Action New Hampshire director; and Lauren Johnson, Polk County (Iowa) Housing Trust Fund policy and communications coordinator.
The Our Homes, Our Votes: 2020 project provides strategies and tools for nonpartisan candidate engagement and voter registration, education, and mobilization. The project seeks to get candidates for office address to issues of homelessness and affordable housing and commit to real solutions. Through Our Homes, Our Votes: 2020 advocates and residents across the country will engage in the electoral process and stress to candidates at every level—federal, state, and local— that affordable housing is a critical issue they must address.
Because affordable homes are built with ballots.
