Advocacy and the Midterm Elections
Conference Track

The upcoming midterm elections are poised to dominate media coverage and the national conversation.

Through a series of skills workshops and plenaries, we’ll tackle these opportunities and more. Conference attendees will hear from veteran journalists, former members of Congress, and those who’ve worked on political campaigns for both major parties. Learn more.

Two Sides of the Same Coin: Understanding the Link Between Housing and Racial Wealth Inequality
Issue Workshop

In 2016, white households had 10 times more wealth than black households and 8 times more wealth than Hispanic households. While homeownership remains a major path to build wealth in America, the U.S. is facing an affordable housing crisis that exacerbates the racial wealth divide. This workshop will examine how U.S. housing policy impacts racial wealth inequality.

Getting Your Letter to the Editor Published
Skills Workshop

Ready to see your name in print? Want to use the media to move your member of Congress to act? We’ll talk through best practices for writing letters to the editor, what it takes to get them published, and how to use them for advocacy. Together we’ll look for news “hooks” and start putting pen to paper.
