Hundreds of advocates joined a webinar on March 18 outlining NLIHC’s key legislative priorities for 2020, what more needs to be done by Congress to respond to the coronavirus pandemic, and what advocates can do to move these priorities forward.

While the coronavirus pandemic canceled NLIHC’s annual Capitol Hill Day in DC this week, it is essential that advocates to continue to communicate to their members of Congress about the importance of accessible, safe, and affordable homes for people with the greatest need and the need for urgent federal action to protect people at the greatest risk during the coronavirus pandemic.
During “NLIHC 2020 Policy Priorities,” the NLIHC policy team discussed immediate homelessness and housing priorities during the pandemic, other key bills before Congress, and the specific asks advocates should make to their members of Congress. The NLIHC field team provided advocacy tips and tools for taking action on these issues, including NLIHC’s new Legislative Action Center – a one-stop-shop for information and advocacy resources to urge your members of Congress to champion affordable housing solutions for the lowest-income people.
