Using Data to Support Organizing and Policy Advocacy: 2017 Renter Week of Action

December 6, 2017 

Thousands of people in dozens of cities across the country participated in this year’s #RenterWeekofAction​, holding actions and assemblies to demand better protections for renters. The National Equity Atlas team partnered with Right to the City to support these local mobilizations by creating 38 fact sheets highlighting renter economic power and what cities gain by ensuring renter affordability. 

Join the National Equity Atlas and Right to the City for a webinar about how data supported and amplified this year’s #RenterWeekofAction​ efforts. Equity Atlas team members Pamela Stephens and Ángel Ross will describe the analysis behind the fact sheets, Malcolm Torrejón Chu of Right to the City will discuss messaging strategy, and Josh Butler of Housing Long Beach will describe how they used the data in their local campaign.
