Habitat on the Hill, Habitat for Humanity International’s annual legislative conference, is an opportunity for Habitat staff, board members, homeowners, resident leaders, volunteers and supporters from around the country to unite as advocates for safe and affordable housing.
Habitat on the Hill 2021: For home, from home will be Habitat’s first virtual legislative conference. Without the constraints of a physical space, this year’s conference will welcome new and seasoned advocates alike, providing opportunities to engage even more supporters to raise a larger collective voice than ever before!
As Habitat deepens our commitment through our national Cost of Home campaign to address the housing affordability challenges that have been further revealed and exacerbated by COVID-19, Habitat on the Hill will serve as a virtual platform to address the underlying policies and systems that hinder access to housing.
The three-day virtual Habitat on the Hill will feature national experts, sharing how well-documented historic patterns of racial discrimination in housing policy have affected home affordability, how election outcomes influence housing policy, how to effectively communicate with legislators and provide guidance as we work toward the Cost of Home campaign goal to ensure that families – no matter where they are, where they live or how much money they earn – have access to a stable, affordable place to call home.
