The Opportunity Starts at Home campaign will host its first informational webinar on August 16, 3:00-4:00 p.m. ET. The free webinar, “Broadening the Housing Movement,” is open to all individuals and organizations interested in learning more about this exciting multi-sector housing campaign. Attendees will learn about the campaign’s progress, short- and long-term plans, policy advocacy goals, and ways to get involved.
All individuals and organizations – in both the housing sector and beyond – have a role to play in this campaign. The research continues to show that housing is inextricably linked to nearly every measure of having a quality life – education, health care, civil rights, economic mobility, poverty reduction, economic productivity and growth, social unity, homeless prevention, veterans care, and more, and powerful new constituencies are coming together to expand the movement for affordable homes.
