**This program is hosted by our partner, Funders Together to End Homelessness, who has extended an invitation to PNY members. Space is limited and will be granted on a first come, first served basis.**
Across the country, communities are working to end homelessness and address housing challenges by shifting policy to transform systems. In order to do that and achieve housing justice, strong political and public will must be built. However, gaining support requires compelling and values-based messaging to make the case. We have heard over and over that we need to “shift the narrative.” But, what does that really mean and what messages work? Join us on October 13th for a look at the landscape of current research and examples of projects that funders are supporting across the country. We’ll highlight findings from the research, opportunities for philanthropy to take strong narratives and messaging and turn it into action, and how to address capacity needs to implement effective messaging for housing justice.
