Too often, affordable homes are ignored in the public debate leading up to elections. To elevate housing solutions on the national agenda, candidates for elected office must understand that the issue of affordable housing is important to voters. This webinar will explore the most common methods to get candidates to discuss housing solutions on the record—including candidate questionnaires, forums, site visits, and town hall meetings—and legal considerations for nonprofits. The discussion will also feature ideas for social media and conventional media engagement with candidates, such as op-eds and Letters to the Editor.
