The Housing Movement is growing! Our commitment to strengthen the economic and political reach of our industry over the past several years is succeeding in big and small ways.
In the third quarter of 2017 we found ourselves engaging with elected officials, arguing in court for fairness in transportation fees, spreading the housing affordability message across social media platforms and in the press, and recognizing elected officials who paved the way for housing’s most successful legislative session in decades.
It was also a time for our re-branded advocacy program to press forward as Housing First Minnesota. We are pleased with the rollout of Housing First Minnesota, a brand that reflects we are the first resource on housing issues, and it ties to our strategic goal to elevate housing a s top issue that policy makers and influencers consider. In the courts, in city halls and at the Capitol, we are now Housing First Minnesota, your advocacy team.
As we look forward to a strong finish to 2017, we embrace our next challenge: growing the housing movement. Learn more on how you can help us grow the housing movement on page 3.
