By Sarah Mickelson, NLIHC Director of Public Policy
Over the next few months, affordable housing and community development organizations have an opportunity to influence a number of critical issues before Congress and to help break through the noise of the presidential campaigns to make affordable housing an election issue.
Join us for a discussion with NLIHC staff on our Summer/Fall Issues Guide and Sample Candidate Questionnaire. On the webinar, we’ll review five ways you can take action between now and the November elections to advocate for the issues that are most important to your mission, the people you serve, and your community.
- Sarah Mickelson, Public Policy Director
- Elayne Weiss, Senior Policy Analyst
- Joseph Lindstrom, Senior Organizer for Housing Advocacy
