Housing Alliance of Pennsylvania Webinar: Come Back Strong: Civic Engagement

Jun 11, 2020

Join this webinar to learn about the Housing Alliance of Pennsylvania campaign to Come Back Strong: Civic Engagement. The webinar, scheduled for Thursday, June 11 from 1 – 2:30 p.m., will  review two civic engagement opportunities, their connection to the Come Back Strong campaign and answer questions.

COVID-19 has exposed significant structural and systemic barriers to equity of opportunity for low income and minority households. Now more than ever before, it is critical that we lift up the voices of people with lived experience to engage in the policy and program decisions that impact their lives.

The Housing Alliance of Pennsylvania announces two civic engagement opportunities.

1. In partnership with Nonprofit Vote, they are launching PA Votes. Our democracy is challenged by wide gaps in voter participation tied to income, age, racial disparities, and other factors. Nonprofit organizations are poised to play a significant role in narrowing these participation gaps. The Housing Alliance is recruiting nonprofit organizations to partner to engage voters in registering new voters and collecting pledges to vote.

2. The Housing Alliance of Pennsylvania is a partner in the Be Heard, Be Healthy PA Campaign, a project of the PA Health Access Network. Safe, stable housing is a critical component of healthy communities. The Housing Alliance of Pennsylvania needs the voices of diverse and underserved communities at the tables having conversations at the state and local level about how to build healthier communities. They are recruiting housing and service providers from rust belt, rural, and inner-ring suburb communities as community partners. Via their partners, they will engage people with lived experience on the barriers they face to good health and their community needs and engage them in proposed policy solutions.
