We know how powerful tenant voices can be in the press. We also know how tough it can be to connect with people who are comfortable and able to speak out publicly about their housing situation. This training provided advice and examples from M+R and local housing advocacy organizations about how to successfully 1) reach and bring in tenant voices; 2) get to know those tenants; 3) prepare them to interview with reporters or publish opinion pieces.
