What's Housing Policy Got to Do With It? 

A pet owner walks into your local animal shelter or calls your organization and says they can't keep their pet because their landlord or management has told them they need to choose the roof over their head or keep their pet. While some protections exist for tenants and for tenants with a disability, the advocacy of animal welfare in the housing space is necessary to create the change needed in housing policies to ensure we keep people and their companion animals together and housed. Join our conversation to learn more about how to intentionally engage in housing policy to create true pet-inclusive housing.

Guest Speaker: Founder & Executive Director of Housing Equity & Advocacy Team (HEART LA)@Dianne Prado
