Opportunity Roundtable

The Opportunity Roundtable enables the campaign to raise awareness about the intersections of housing and other sectors, continually expand its multi-sector network, and reach a diverse array of new stakeholders.

Representatives from roughly 75 multi-sector organizations, including housing, education, healthcare, civil rights, anti-poverty, seniors, faith-based, anti-hunger, veterans, LGBTQ, and more have joined this new initiative designed to foster cross-sector engagement.  The Roundtable meets in-person three times per year in Washington D.C.

Participants receive regular updates about the campaign’s progress, engage in robust conversations about the intersectionality of housing and other sectors, and provide feedback about campaign activities.  Participants also have the option to engage with the campaign’s policy advocacy efforts to the extent they wish.

Representatives from the following organizations are currently engaged with the Roundtable. Participating in Roundtable dialogue does not represent an endorsement of the Opportunity Starts at Home campaign’s policy goals. Roundtable participation only indicates an interest in cross-sector engagement. Organizations with a national-level focus that are interested in future Roundtable participation can contact Mike Koprowski at mkoprowski@nlihc.org for more information.
