The National Homelessness Law Center is launching an election guide for the 2020 United States presidential race, as well as a Voting Rights Toolkit for each of the 50 states. The Election 2020 Guide to the Human Right to Housing seeks to promote the human right to housing as a major issue in the 2020 election, and the Toolkit ensures that those without a permanent home are still able to make their voice heard.
The Law Center believes housing is a fundamental human right and that all candidates and officials should embrace this framework in order to create policies that guarantee this right for all Americans. The Guide provides information to advocates, voters, and candidates on homelessness as well as housing statistics for cities and states across the U.S. It also includes tools, like a 2020 election events calendar, an overview of causes and solutions around housing and homelessness, social media guides, hashtags to follow our updates on the election, and more.
The Guide is an evolving project and is subject to change. Keep up with it by following us on Twitter and Instagram @NLCHPhomeless!
The Law Center is a non-partisan organization and will not be endorsing any presidential candidates.
