Make Housing a Global Priority


Click for spanish.jpg




There’s a saying:  What gets measured gets done.

For that reason, the Post-2015 agenda, which global leaders will finalize this year, should include measurable goals for housing. A home is the foundation for nearly every aspect of our lives, from education and economic opportunities, to health and safety. All people – women, men and children of all ages, races, religions, nationalities, and economic levels – should have a safe, healthy place to call home.
We invite you to join thousands of people and organizations, including Habitat for Humanity, in the call to make housing and human settlements a priority for governments around the world.



Let those setting the agenda know that you care about housing and want to see a world where everyone has a decent place to live. 

If you live in the U.S., click HERE to add your name to the petition asking Ambassador Elizabeth Cousens, Permanent Mission of the United States to the UN, to ensure that the U.S. supports sustainable cities and human settlements as a global priority.

If you live outside of the U.S., click HERE to support sign this petition directly to the UN. (U.S. residents are welcome to sign this one, too!)


 Tweet at your UN Rep. using their Twitter handle. (If they don't use Twitter, email them.)
