Concerned About Federal Housing Issues? Come and Be Heard in Washington, DC!
Our friends at the Housing and Community Development Network (HCDNNJ) are coordinating a statewide advocacy campaign at noon on Wednesday March 30, 2011 at the National Low Income Housing Coalition’s 2011 Housing Lobby Day. Now more than ever our members of Congress need to hear from us! Join us in DC!
The Network is organizing New Jersey advocates and consumers to meet with our Congressional representatives about housing issues. As the new Congress begins, it is critical that New Jersey’s delegation hear directly from Garden State residents about ways the federal government can help solve the housing crisis.
The Network will schedule the meetings, prepare materials and provide training for participants. We will help coordinate transportation if needed. All we need is you!
Join us in DC at noon and be on the road home by 4:00 pm. There is no charge to participate.
