New Highlights Video and Photos Share Inspirational Messages of Congressional Reception

Elected Officials, Speakers, and Advocates Show Commitment to Housing is a Right

The 2019 Congressional Reception highlights video is here! This video shares inspiring moments from the July 24 Congressional Reception when 300 advocates traveled to Washington, D.C. to remind elected officials that Housing is a Right, Housing is Healthcare and Housing Creates Healthy Communities.

This year’s theme was Opportunity Starts at Home: Building a Necessary and Secure Foundation for Healthy Communities.

Jillian Lapidus, a summer intern for Monarch Housing Associates, created a video of this year’s Congressional Reception highlighting the 2019 Federal Policy Priorities, impact speakers, national speakers and elected officials. Whether you attended this year’s Congressional Reception or were unable to make it, please take a few minutes to watch the video above.

You can share this video with your network of those impacted by homelessness, colleagues, elected officials, friends and family to continue advocating for affordable housing and homeless assistance programs.

Photos from the Congressional Reception are now available on the Monarch Housing Associates Facebook page. View the album here.  In addition to the photos on Monarch’s Facebook page, please check out the #NJHillDay twitter feed to see the photos taken by attendees that further capture the spirit of the Congressional Reception.
