The National Low Income Housing Coalition is committed to providing high-level resources, tools, and training to housing providers, advocates, service agencies, resident councils, and allies throughout the country who are devoted to increasing registration and turnout rates among low income renters. To provide detailed information on the many facets of voter and candidate engagement efforts, NLIHC is providing a series of webinars and podcasts over the next 15 months. These discussions will feature experts and advocates with frontline experience in election efforts.
NLIHC conducted a series of six webinars to provide clear information to assist organizations and leaders hoping to engage low income renters in the 2018 elections. Showing elected officials that housing is an important election issue will be essential to advancing policies at the federal, state, and local levels.
A recording of the first webinar of the Our Homes, Our Votes: 2020 project is available below, as well as the schedule for upcoming webinars and podcasts.
NLIHC partnered with experts in the field of voter engagement to provide these webinars.
