Tell Congress to #MakeRoom for Affordable Housing via @MakeRoomUSA

Make Room, a national campaign giving a voice to renters and aiming to end the national rental housing crisis, wants to send 1 million messages to Congress before November 8th to demand attention, action and resources to end the affordable housing crisis in America. 

Organizations and individuals can join the campaign by visiting makeroomusa.org to sign the national sign-on letter to Congress, download the Take Action Toolkit, and read stories about renters across the country. After signing on, you can spread the word via social media using the hashtag #MakeRoom.

Make fighting for affordable housing part of your theory of change by getting involved with organizations like the National Low Income Housing Coalition and the primary organization behind the Make Room campaign, Enterprise.

Leading up to the election, we want to give you the resources, knowledge and inspiration to get involved and stay involved beyond November. Because no matter who wins the Presidency, as progressives, we always need to be prepared to fight for what is right…That’s what keeps bending that arc of the moral universe toward justice.

So, if getting Congress to put affordable housing issues front and center is important to you, then be sure to hit the share buttons to spread the word about telling Congress to #MakeRoom for Affordable Housing via social media so that others in your network can get involved too.
