April 8th – 14th Marks Habitat International’s Celebration of Act! Speak! Build! Week!

This annual event encourages youths to advocate for affordable housing and policies to end poverty housing and homelessness. Here’s how you can become an advocate:

  • Act: Become an online advocate with Habitat for Humanity and learn about the issues related to poor housing conditions.
  • Speak: Challenge peers to become advocates through Act! Speak! Build Week events and partner with your local Habitat for Humanity to provide a true understanding of how Habitat partners with families in your community and in other countries.
  • Build: Build awareness in your community about poor living conditions through events that engage local officials, such as scheduling visits with local representatives about housing issues, letter-writing and phone call campaigns to U.S. representatives.
