Event description


Join us for a Next Level Housing Solutions Discussion: Building Urgency and Political Will*

There are many policy solutions that could have impact, but their viability is challenged by the lack of urgency and broad political will that is needed to get municipal leaders to lead on a crisis that their constituents may not currently feel. How do we sound the alarm and build the support needed to meet our housing challenges head-on? What are the educational, media, organizing, coalition building and other strategies we can pursue to create the necessary political will?

*Note: These are brainstorming and discussion sessions, not panel discussions. Discussion leaders will try to ensure that broad perspectives are represented, and will seek to prompt thoughtful, action-oriented discussion, with the goal of bringing insights and initiatives back to the larger group in the fall. Each discussion will seek to include a very brief summary of efforts already underway. Please reach out to us if you would like to join us in planning and facilitating one or more of these discussions. Dates and times have been scheduled.
