We’ll also hear from keynote speaker, Michael Anderson, Director of the Housing Trust Fund Project for Community Change as he presents, “Impacting Equity with Local Housing Trust Funds.”
For more than 30 years, the Housing Trust Fund Project has operated as a clearinghouse of information on housing trust funds throughout the country, and provides technical assistance to organizations, agencies, and elected officials working to create or implement these funds. Michael has developed expertise in values based framing and messaging as an integral communications component to advancing housing trust funds and other housing policy. In 2020, he participated in the development of housing messages framed in the national Housing Justice Narrative initiative in conjunction with Race Forward and PolicyLink. Michael has presented on housing messaging research at national and state conferences, and has conducted more than one hundred messaging trainings for housing and homeless advocates. We are honored to welcome him to our virtual stage on January 27th.
Other scheduled activities during this virtual meeting include a presentation of our 2020 Annual Report, the debut of our new Community Impact Note and an introduction to Housing Land Trust Ventura County, a newly created Supporting Nonprofit under Housing Trust Fund Ventura County.
