NLIHC encourages advocates from across the country to register for our upcoming March 16 webinar, “NLIHC’s Policy Priorities for 2022,” in preparation for Virtual Capitol Hill Day on March 24. Virtual Capitol Dill Day allows advocates to meet with members of Congress and their staff to urge them to fund affordable housing programs at the highest levels possible, advance anti-racist policies, and support legislation that will improve the lives of the lowest-income people. The March 16 webinar will help advocates prepare for Capitol Hill Day by familiarizing attendees with NLIHC’s policy priorities. Capitol Hill Day is part of our annual Virtual Housing Policy Forum 2022. Register for the Forum here. Register for the webinar here.
The upcoming webinar, “NLIHC’s Policy Priorities for 2022,” will take place on March 16at 12:00 pm ET. NLIHC’s policy team will discuss our policy priorities for Capitol Hill Day, and the field team will provide an overview addressing how housing providers, tenant associations, and homeless service agencies can connect their work to our policy priorities and providing access to resources to share during Hill meetings. Register here.
NLIHC hosted another webinar, “Advocacy 101: Meetings with Elected Officials and the Legislative Process,” on March 9. During the webinar, NLIHC’s field team discussed the basics of the legislative and budget processes, offered tips for effective advocacy meetings, and held a practice Capitol Hill meeting. View a recording of the webinar here.
In addition to the webinars, NLIHC will offer other sessions and resources in anticipation of Capitol Hill Day. On March 23, we will host a brief session giving an overview of factsheets and resources available to advocates making essential legislative asks. We will also provide advocates with a comprehensive virtual Advocacy Day Toolkit to guide Hill meetings. The toolkit contains information on our policy priorities, suggestions about how to manage advocacy meetings, talking points, data sheets on housing needs, and state-specific information.
