Housing Equity, Advocacy, and Leadership

The 6-week HEAL program provides participants with the groundwork to become affordable housing advocates, educators, leaders, and innovators in their communities and beyond. Participants will develop leadership skills and a deep understanding of the history of housing advocacy, cutting-edge solutions, and how to get involved locally.

Program graduates can apply for a HEAL Fellowship—mini-grants with continued mentorship—to support their own housing justice projects or initiatives.

Participants will learn to

Bring voice and power to all seats of decision-making to ensure all community voices are heard and respected
Expose and challenge how poverty, low wages, and discrimination contribute to the housing crisis
Effectively advocate for practices and policies that strengthen the livability of Miami communities
Educate others on housing advocacy, solutions, and how to get involved
