Call for Presenters - State & Local Policy

The People & Places 2017 steering committee requests proposals for sessions that highlight successful strategies and campaigns that advance public policies relevant to housing and community development at the state and local levels. Limited travel assistance is available for selected presenters. Submit your proposal by Friday, February 24.

CONTENT

Session should include:
• A description of the policy that is/was intended to be adopted;
• What made the organizing strategy, coalition, and/or campaign effective;
• What community or organizational capacity was needed to succeed; and/or
• Training for other advocates on a tactic or approach that was central to your strategy.

Note: Policies need not have been formally adopted by government, though they should be mature in development and campaign implementation.

Topics of particular interest:
• Strategies to involve people impacted by the lack of affordable housing and economic opportunity in advocacy activities that go beyond telling their stories;
• Models for advancing policy in rural areas;
• Strategies for organizing AND sustaining racially diverse coalitions;
• Methods of funding campaign/coalition staff.

PARTICIPANTS

Participants will include community development placemakers, advocates, association staff, policy makers, funders and intermediaries. We expect between 40-120 participants per session.

FORMAT

People & Places 2017 will include a mix of presentation formats to address a diversity of learning styles. Sessions should create opportunities for participant engagement and allocate significant time for Q&A. Most sessions will run for 75-90 minutes. TED-style talks will be much shorter.

DEADLINE

Submit your proposal by Friday, February 24.
