 We know that our well-being depends on having access to a safe and affordable home. Olivia Chow's op-ed in the Toronto Star addresses how partner violence and housing insecurity are deeply connected.

Together with the Douglas Coldwell Layton Foundation (DCLF), we're hosting a 6-week series starting Tuesday, April 11, called Passion to Action: Learn How to Advocate for Social Housing. This training comes at a low cost, and it's a valuable opportunity to meet others who want to participate in real change to build safe and affordable places to live.

Olivia wrote this op-ed to share her insights and inspire us to take action. Let's support Olivia's passion and strengthen ICL's capacity for housing advocacy. It would mean a lot to her for you to donate to this effort and support her ongoing work on this critical issue.
