With the 2016 election season upon us, it’s more important than ever that we make our voices heard on critical issues of affordable housing. More than 20 million American families – including seniors, veterans, people with disabilities and the working poor – can barely keep a roof over their heads, paying more than half of their income on rent. This leads to desperate tradeoffs between keeping a roof overhead and buying food or medicine. The problem is solvable – if Congress does its part to increase resources and improve policies.
Tuesday, September 27 is #National Voter Registration Day. October 24 is the last day to register for the November 8 election. Jamboree has joined the campaign to get housing on the agenda for Election Day and beyond. We hope you’ll join us. Here are three ways you can make your voice heard on the need for more affordable housing.
The Jamboree mission is to deliver high quality affordable housing and services that transform lives and strengthen communities. An election year is a critical opportunity to have a voice in elevating the conversation about affordable housing. Congress needs to hear that our nation is facing a housing affordability crisis of record proportions that demands their leadership. Thank you for joining us to make some noise and make some change.
