The NAHREP National Advocacy Committee is Back in NACtion for 2023!

As the NAHREP National Advocacy Committee (the NAC) launches into its fourth year, we wanted to take a moment to reflect on how far we’ve come. Our very first blog was published in October of 2019, where we told you what to expect when you sign up for the NAC and take action with NAHREP. Since then, we’ve had 4,462 NAC sign ups and have sent 7,373 emails and phone calls to our legislators. That’s a big deal! And a huge credit to the work all of you have done to advance our mission.
