HUD will host a hybrid event, “National Conversation @ The Community Table,” on Tuesday, July 25, from 11 am to 1:30 pm ET. The event will highlight HUD’s progress in following through on the commitments made in the Blueprint for a Renters Bill of Rights, a document released by the White House in January. The event will also serve to educate attendees about tenants’ rights and tenant protections in HUD-funded properties. Register for the event here.
During the event, HUD officials will offer agency updates, tenant leaders will reflect on progress made advancing tenants’ rights, and attendees will have a chance to discuss the White House’s Blueprint. The event will also feature sessions highlighting local examples of each of the five principles advanced in the Blueprint in action, namely:
- Access to safe, quality, accessible, and affordable housing.
- Clear and fair leases.
- Education, enforcement, and enhancement of rights.
- The right to organize.
- Eviction prevention, diversion, and relief.
The event is open to members of the public, including tenants and renters, public housing authority staff, multifamily owners and landlords, elected and appointed officials, and advocacy and grassroots organizing coalition members. Register for the event here.
