Virtual Capitol Hill Day on Thursday, March 24

NLIHC invites advocates across the country to join us for our Virtual Capitol Hill Day on Thursday, March 24. Advocates like you will meet with members of Congress or their staff to urge them to support funding affordable housing programs at the highest levels possible, advance anti-racist policies, and support legislation that will improve the lives of the lowest-income people. If you would like to set up appointments for Capitol Hill Day, please contact NLIHC’s Joey Lindstrom at [email protected]. There may be meetings already set up for your state and district that you can join.

NLIHC is also hosting a webinar, “NLIHC’s Policy Priorities for 2022,” which will take place on March 16 at 12 pm ET. NLIHC’s policy team will discuss our policy priorities, and the NLIHC field team will provide an overview of how housing providers, tenant associations, and homeless service agencies can connect their work to our policy priorities. They will also give suggestions about resources to share during Hill meetings. Register here.
