Habitat on the Hill
Habitat for Humanity International’s Annual Legislative Conference
Habitat on the Hill 2016 marks Habitat’s 10th annual legislative conference, during which advocates for decent housing, including Habitat staff members, board members, homeowners, volunteers and youth from across the country, gather in Washington, D.C., to discuss Habitat’s legislative priorities and hold face-to-face meetings with lawmakers on Capitol Hill.
With the presidential election on the horizon, the theme of the 2016 conference, “Framing the Future,” captures our focus on the housing challenges ahead, the policy solutions to address them and equipping housing advocates with the tools to shape the future of housing.
Plenary speakers for Habitat on the Hill 2015 included Department of Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julian Castro, Representative Emanuel Cleaver, D-Mo., and CBS White House Correspondent Major Garrett, among others. On the final day of the conference, the launch event of the 2015 Shelter Report, Habitat’s annual research report on shelter issues around the globe, featured a panel of experts addressing how residential energy efficiency can transform low-income communities.
