ACTIONS YOU CAN TAKE TODAY! 

Federal Advocacy:

  • The National Low Income Housing Coalition released an action page this week urging Members of Congress to resume negotiations to ensure that we don't see a massive increase in homelessness during COVID-19. On the page there's an advocacy toolkit, story collection tool, and more. Take action here!
  • Submit a comment on HUD's harmful proposed rule removing anti-discrimination protections for trans and nonbinary people experiencing homelessness. You can take action by submitting a comment via the #HousingSavesLives action page, and the National LGBTQ Taskforce has created a Partner Toolkit to assist you! 
  • Influence our 2021 State Legislative Agenda: Please take our Public Policy Survey which influences our 2021 legislative agenda. Tell us what you are seeing in your community regarding housing and homelessness. The deadline is 5pm on August 31st, so don't hesitate! 

 

Resources:

Register for the Virtual Conference on Ending Homelessness, Oct. 7-8!
Read the recent report from NLIHC, Evictionlab, COVID-19 Eviction Defense Project and Aspen Institute, outlining the eviction crisis ahead of us. This is an important source to cite when talking to lawmakers.
