Register for Upcoming Our Homes, Our Votes Webinar: “Tenant Organizing and Elections”

The Our Homes, Our Votes: 2024 webinar series provides resources, guidance, and inspiration for organizations and individuals seeking to launch or strengthen their own nonpartisan voter and candidate engagement initiatives. The next webinar in the series, “Tenant Organizing and Elections: Getting Out the Renter Vote,” will take place on Monday, June 17, at 2:30 pm ET. Register for the webinar here.  

Tenant leaders are trusted messengers who can effectively register and mobilize their neighbors to vote. The upcoming webinar will feature a roundtable of resident leaders from the Minneapolis Highrise Representative Council (MHRC), a citywide tenant organization representing more than 5,000 residents in 42 public housing high rises in Minneapolis. Resident leaders will discuss how to develop messaging that builds trust and generates enthusiasm about participating in the democratic process, successful tactics for reaching first-time voters, ways to ensure that low-income renters have the resources and information they need to vote, how to organize residents to become leaders in their own communities’ election engagement efforts, and how to hold candidates accountable to their campaign promises.
