NLIHC now has tools to help advocates make the United for Homes (UFH) campaign go viral.
The UFH campaign calls for modest reforms to the mortgage interest deduction (MID) to ensure everyone in America has access to affordable and stable homes.
Tools to help advocates spread the UFH message to the media and to educate people outside of the housing advocacy community are available on the “Resources” page on the UFH website under the “Gain Attention” section.
The Gain Attention section provides a Media Toolkit, Twitter and Facebook Images, and the UFH Logo. Users can download UFH images and include them, for example, in a tweet to a member of Congress or on a poster for a rally. Research shows that sharing images on social media generates a more compelling and stronger impression than sharing text alone.
The Media Toolkit is a resource that can be used when discussing the campaign with the media.
