In a few weeks the presidential candidates will return to the debate stage in Houston, TX, to discuss their positions, promises, and policies. NLIHC and our partners are calling on the moderators of the third debate to ask the candidates about their affordable housing solutions. Join a letter urging them to do so here.
The candidates are talking about the nation’s shortage of affordable homes and their solutions on the campaign trail as never before – because voters are demanding they do! Many candidates have already released their plans and proposals to address the housing crisis, with most centering on the needs of people experiencing homelessness and the lowest-income renters. The moderators of first two Democratic presidential debates have failed, however, to directly ask the candidates what they would do about the crisis that makes it nearly impossible for millions of families to keep roofs over their heads.
Take a moment to add your organization to a national letter urging the ABC and Univision debate moderators of the next 2020 Democratic debate – George Stephanopoulos, David Muir, Linsey Davis and Jorge Ramos – to ask the candidates about the most important issue impacting our nation’s economic and overall wellbeing—affordable housing. Over 300 organizations have signed; let’s double that number this week!
Sign your organization on to the letter to the debate moderators today.
We also urge you to become involved in NLIHC’s nonpartisan voter and candidate engagement project, Our Homes, Our Votes: 2020, to raise the issue of affordable housing in the 2020 elections, engage candidates on the issue, track their comments and proposals, and involve more low-income renters in voting.
