Housing is in a state of crisis in America. Rising home prices and stagnant wages have resulted in tremendous strain on housing markets across the country, putting local leaders on the front lines to help their communities find housing solutions.

There is no longer time to talk about the issue — it is time for action.

To uncover how we ended up in this crisis, and how we can solve it, more than 20 local leaders and elected officials from across the country came together to form the National League of Cities (NLC) Housing Task Force. As we release the product of this work — a comprehensive guide with recommendations for all levels of government — we invite you to hear from a panel of task force members about how they’re taking action in some of America’s most acutely affected cities.


  • Muriel Bowser, mayor of Washington, D.C.
  • Karen Freeman-Wilson, mayor of Gary, Indiana, and National League of Cities’s 2019 president
  • Teresa Mosqueda, city councilmember, Seattle, Washington
  • Clarence Anthony, CEO and executive director, National League of Cities

Additional speakers to be announced.
