Homes for All MN is hosting a Tweetchat to elevate support for affordable housing during a critical moment in the legislative process.
Don’t worry; it’s simple! A Tweetchat is just a specific time period during which we focus our conversation around a particular topic and hashtag to raise awareness and visibility. On Thursday, April 19, from 12-1 p.m., we’ll join forces to advance our call for the #Homes4AllMN agenda, including the Workforce Homeownership Minnesota (WHOM) bill, #Bonds4Housing and #HousingTaxCredit.
Our Tweetchats typically capture more than 100,000 impressions on social media — and this chat is particularly important. Lawmakers at the state capitol are writing legislation RIGHT NOW that will have a huge impact on statewide investments in affordable housing.
We have just HOURS to influence critical tax bills — and your voice matters! As we speak, the tax committees are writing their omnibus bills and there's a narrow window of time to influence the House and Senate. As they juggle competing priorities with limited resources, lawmakers need to hear your support to make sure housing is a priority!
Will you join us by committing to be on Twitter during the chat and sharing your input? Here are the questions we'll discuss so you can prepare!
1) Is housing affordability and access a priority in your community? Why does #Homes4AllMN matter to your members, constituents or residents?
2) What #MnLeg leaders have championed issues and bills that are important to you this session?
3) What are the key bills that #MnLeg must address during these critical final weeks of the 2018 session?
4) Why do you support #Bonds4Housing, #HousingTaxCredit and the workforce homeownership bill?
