Long before the COVID pandemic laid bare the human cost of housing injustice in the United States, access to housing has been one of the dominant drivers of race and gender inequity in this country. While there has been a deep and rich history of housing organizing and policy advocacy, this moment demands that we come together to employ new tools to frame the debate and win meaningful change.
For the past nine months Community Change, PolicyLink, and Race Forward with the support of Funders for Housing and Opportunity have been collaborating in a public opinion research project to develop tools and strategies for housing. Their work draws from lessons learned from the Race-Class Narrative Project, as well as research and analysis from ASO Communications in summer 2019. For this project, they contracted with Lake Research Partners to conduct a series of focus groups in early 2020 followed by a national phone poll that concluded in late April.
Now they are ready to share the lessons learned and new narrative tools with partners and allies working for housing justice. Join this webinar series by Community Change, PolicyLink, and Race Forward to learn about new tools and strategies to advance a housing justice narrative intended to help organizers and advocates achieve our collective goals of racial justice and homes for all.
