MCAH’s Legislative Action Committee is a vehicle for volunteers to help shape policy on issues of homelessness in Michigan. Together, we:
- Identify and work toward policy that better represents the needs of the homeless population throughout our state;
- Discuss and strategize with viewpoints from the field, urban and rural communities, and the state capitol;
- Train and educate ourselves and decision makers about the impact of policy on individuals and families experiencing homelessness;
- Engage and advocate with policy makers to enact change and improve the lives of our clients, friends, family, and fellow Michiganders.
Register for our monthly webinar on the first Monday of the month from 12:00 – 1:00.
Meeting recordings available at MCAH’s YouTube Channel.
