GIVE THANKS FOR AFFORDABLE HOUSING ADVOCACY ON GIVING TUESDAY
As the Thanksgiving holiday is upon us, we would like to take a moment to celebrate and give thanks with you. We at NPH are thankful for all the support our members and partners have shown throughout the year to help advance our critical affordable housing work.
This Thanksgiving, we invite you to give thanks for this work by participating in our Giving Tuesday campaign.
Can we count on you to help, either by donating or by spreading the word from now until December 3rd?
AFFORDABLE HOUSING FINALLY GETS THE SPOTLIGHT ON THE DEMOCRATIC DEBATE STAGE
After the first four debates neglected the issue, Democratic presidential candidates were finally asked during the November 20 debate to explain how they would address America's affordable housing crisis.
Tom Steyer, Elizabeth Warren, and Cory Booker were given the chance to answer the question. They each discussed some of the reasons why too many Americans can't find an affordable place to live, and proposed a variety of solutions to that problem. Watch their answers here.
Please join us on December 5th for food, fun, and an opportunity to connect with fellow NPH members.
Over drinks and hors d'oeuvres, we will celebrate the successes we have accomplished this past year with you – our members, partners, and advocates. We'll also be electing new NPH board members and thanking outgoing NPH board members.
This event is free to all NPH members and future members, but registration is required to help us plan accordingly.
