United for Homes endorsers are invited to join a webinar, “Direct Action and the United for Homes Campaign: Disruption and Agitation in the Effort for MID Reform,” on July 12 at 2 pm ET. Presenters from NLIHC and a number of United for Homes endorsing organizations will discuss the importance of involving funding solutions like MID reform in local efforts that draw attention to the ongoing crisis of homelessness and the affordable housing shortage.
The upcoming webinar will feature Randy Shaw, editor of Beyond Chron and the Director of San Francisco’s Tenderloin Housing Clinic, a United for Homes endorser. Mr. Shaw is the author of four books on activism, including The Activist’s Handbook: Winning Social Change in the 21st Century and The Tenderloin: Sex, Crime and Resistance in the Heart of San Francisco. On the webinar, Mr. Shaw will discuss the importance of direct action throughout the history of housing policy change in America.
United for Homes webinars highlight best practices for advocacy and provide a broader understanding of how mortgage interest deduction reform is helpful to social movements focused on more than just housing. The most recent webinar in June, “Housing, Racial Equity, and United for Homes,” provided campaign overviews and perspectives from endorsers who work on social justice for communities of color. Anj Chaudhry from the National Coalition for Asian and Pacific American Community Development, Lot Diaz from the National Council of La Raza, and Pinky Clifford from the Oglala Sioux Tribe Partnership for Housing all shared information about how United for Homes would benefit the communities in their networks.
