Our Homes, Our Votes Webinar - Holding Candidates to their Campaign Promises

November 14, 2022 2:30 PM - November 14, 2022 3:30 PM

Elected officials are most attentive to the concerns of their constituents who vote. After the election is over, housing organizations should evaluate the success of their voter engagement efforts and demonstrate that low-income renters are a significant, active voting bloc in their communities—a constituency to whom elected officials must be responsive. Panelists will discuss opportunities to hold elected officials accountable to their campaign promises, establish relationships with new staff, and ensure that candidates who champion affordable housing on the campaign trail maintain that commitment when their terms begin.
