We’re three weeks away from our Lobby Days, and so many of you have already signed up to share your voices from your screens at home. Thirteen RUN leaders have already gotten everyone trained up in how to do a lobby visit and our two bills for this year - in both English and Spanish!
Register for Lobby Days now
Here’s Alice Mouradian of Los Angeles explaining AB 328 with some gorgeous artwork she created at our English-language training last week.
Here’s what you can do this week to prep for Lobby Days:
- Have you already attended one or two RUN trainings in English? Catch the last one this Wednesday.
- Do you live in affordable housing - or wish you did? Register for Lobby Day and attend our last-call training in English on March 2 or in Spanish on March 3.
- Are you a staff member at an affordable housing development? Are you a homeowner who supports affordable housing? Would you count yourself as an ally to residents of affordable housing? Register for Lobby Day and attend our ally training (in English) on March 4.
- Do you have friends who should come to Lobby Days? Help them register, too!
In our trainings, you’ll learn what to do and how to speak to legislators in powerful ways. Join the movement for housing justice - there’s room for everyone!
Take good care,
- We will NOT have a regular Community Care call this Wednesday at 1pm.

These trainings will NOT have Spanish interpretation.
