OUR HOMES, OUR VOTES
Our Homes, Our Votes is a nonpartisan campaign to register, educate,
and mobilize low-income renters and affordable housing advocates
to vote. Renters, especially low-income renters, are
underrepresented among voters. To build the political will for housing solutions, it is critical that organizations that work directly with low-income renters--including nonprofits, housing providers, and tenant associations--mobilize renters and other low-income people to vote.
The National Low Income Housing Coalition (NLIHC) is dedicated
to achieving racially and socially equitable public policy that
ensures people with the lowest incomes have quality homes that
are accessible and affordable in communities of their choice.
Founded in 1974 by Cushing N. Dolbeare, NLIHC educates, organizes and advocates to ensure stable, accessible, affordable homes for everyone.
Our goals are to preserve existing federally assisted homes and housing resources, expand the supply of low-income housing, and establish housing stability as the primary purpose of federal low-income housing policy.
NLIHC works to elevate affordable rental housing as a top priority for policy makers by supporting the work of local organizations to register, educate, and mobilize low-income renters to vote.
NLIHC originally developed its voter engagement materials with the advice and assistance of these national partners: Alliance for Justice, League of Women Voters, and Nonprofit VOTE.
