On August 27, the Opportunity Starts at Home campaign issued its first Call to Action about a specific piece of legislation. The campaign calls on advocates to urge Congress to support the “Task Force on the Impact of the Affordable Housing Crisis Act” (S. 3231). This bill would create a bipartisan affordable housing task force to better understand the multi-sector impacts of America’s affordable housing crisis and to identify solutions.
The bill was introduced in July by Senators Todd Young (R-IN), Maria Cantwell (D-WA), and Angus King (I-ME) with support from Senators Dean Heller (R-NV), Tim Kaine (D-VA), Doug Jones (D-AL), Cory Gardner (R-CO), Marco Rubio (R-FL), and Chris Coons (D-DE).
Help build momentum by sending the campaign’s letter to your senators urging them to support the creation of this bipartisan affordable housing task force, and spread the word about this letter to your networks and contacts.
