Get Organized to Take Action

Advocacy was a big theme in this year's conference. As we move forward, it will be essential to speak up for the resources we all need to end homelessness. The Alliance will launch several advocacy actions in the coming months, and we need as much engagement as possible with the members of Congress who ultimately control federal spending on homelessness.

You can help now by subscribing to the Alliance's Advocacy Alert emails. The Alliance's new tools make it simple to take action and speak up for your needs.
