OUR HOMES, OUR VOTES
Our Homes, Our Votes is a nonpartisan campaign to register, educate,
and mobilize more low-income renters and affordable housing advocates
to be involved in voting. Renters, especially low-income renters, are
underrepresented among voters. To ensure low-income housing interests
are represented, it is critical that organizations engage these renters and
other low-income people in the voting process.
The National Low Income Housing Coalition (NLIHC) is dedicated
solely 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 decent, affordable housing 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 increase voter registration, turnout, and education among low-income renters and their allies.
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.
