Speak Up

Let your elected officials hear from YOU about what matters most!

Speak up! Sharing your knowledge and support for homeless services and housing can help an elected official to better understand the crisis of homelessness in our region (including its intersections with other issues), and influence lawmakers to champion positive policy and budget solutions.

Local council members, executive officials, state legislators, and U.S. Congress members make decisions that directly affect the communities we live and work in. Public policy and budgets also inform what answers we have for people seeking services, housing, and support from critical programs. Elected officials and staff are ready to hear from the people they represent– it’s up to us to speak up.

Help pass good laws and strong budgets that make a real difference for people without homes. Drop into our virtual gathering space to get quick information about key priorities, meet others, learn who your lawmakers are, and generate some hope.
