ACTIONS YOU CAN TAKE TODAY!
Take action by contacting your Members of Congress and tell them that the Senate proposal is unacceptable and that Congress must pass the essential housing provisions of the HEROES Act! You can take action here.
Here are some notes and materials from NLIHC:
- Priority policy asks with bill numbers.
- Contact us at the Housing Alliance or Joey at NLIHC if you need the contact information for the housing staffers for their members of Congress.
- Election engagement information.
- 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!
