Familia, tenemos buenas noticias: the Temecula Valley chapter has been awarded Advocacy Chapter of the Year! We are amazed by Temecula Valley’s commitment and passion for advancing NAHREP’s mission. This chapter has truly demonstrated passion, commitment, and expertise when advocating for Latino homeownership.
The NAHREP Atlanta chapter has set the bar with their advocacy work over the last year – through building relationships with elected and appointed officials, hosting top ranking officials and their staff at chapter events, joining important housing coalitions, and creating educational content for their membership to keep them engaged in housing policy. This month, we interviewed NAHREP Atlanta’s Government Affairs Director Juan Mejia to find out what has made his chapter so successful and what plans the chapter has coming down the pipeline in 2023.
Chapter Feature: NAHREP Fairfield County excels at building relationships and taking on housing policy in their state
This month, we are featuring the NAHREP Fairfield County chapter for their great work in building relationships with elected officials and making real policy change happen! In the last year, the chapter featured Connecticut’s Governor Ned Lamont and other top-ranking housing officials within the state at their events. The chapter has worked hard to leverage existing relationships and build new ones, simply by reaching out and sharing NAHREP’s message. Due to those relationships, the chapter was able to advance NAHREP’s mission and make real policy changes happen when it was needed the most.
The NAHREP Lake County chapter has been making some big things happen! At a recent educational event on October 10, the chapter hosted U.S. Congressman Brad Schneider to discuss housing policy and other important issues. The event was a huge success and a full house of attendees got a chance to hear about NAHREP’s policy priorities, including Congressman Schneider’s take on housing inventory, immigration, and the recently passed Inflation Reduction Act. The NAHREP policy team got a chance to interview NAHREP Lake County President Carlos Rosado and Treasurer Josh Martinez about what has made their chapter so successful and some takeaways from the event.
