Opportunity for Affordable Housing Advocates
- Hello All: I am interning with the Silicon Valley Leadership Group
this summer and wanted to share a potentially interesting
opportunity for anyone interesting in affordable housing advocacy.
As many of you know, Bay Area cities must complete revisions of
their Housing Elements by June 2009. At the Leadership Group, we
are trying to organize teams for each city in Santa Clara County to
advocate for affordable housing policies at community meetings and
If you are interested in participating, please send an email to
housing@... with your contact information and primary
city/cities of interest.
This is a great opportunity for anyone, but especially students that
want experience speaking at public hearings and participating in the
Housing Element update process. The Leadership Group will also
provide you with training so that you can advocate as effectively as
possible. Lastly, this can also be a great networking opportunity.
