National Month For Renters is a platform designed to increase awareness of the rental housing crisis in America. Our goal is to validate the housing affordability issue, empower the 11 million families who are severely burdened by high rents, and advocate for policy change. The month will be marked by several high-profile events and supported by a robust digital and social media campaign.
