A More Equitable Future
NPH is proud to embed racial equity and inclusion into all of our work, as we work to advance racial justice as an organization as well as promote it throughout the broader affordable housing movement. This work includes promoting public policies that seek to address the Bay Area’s discriminatory housing policies and other structural inequities. It also includes developing and delivering comprehensive and innovative programs designed to center racial equity and inclusion in our organization as well as our industry.
Bay Area Housing Internship Program (BAHIP)
NPH’s Bay Area Affordable Housing Internship Program (BAHIP) is one of several NPH initiatives to advance racial equity and inclusion in the affordable housing sector. The goal of BAHIP is to diversify our field and nurture the next generation of affordable housing development professionals. Get involved by applying to the internship or becoming a host organization!
Anti-Racist Champions of Change (ARCC)
Our Anti-Racist Champions of Change (ARCC) program is designed for BIPOC managers and their executive-level leaders in the Bay Area’s affordable housing industry who are ready to see their organization at the forefront of change and are committed to dismantling oppressive power dynamics in the affordable housing field.
Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion Working Group
This member working group is focused on advancing racial equity and inclusion across the NPH community and the affordable housing sector. Areas of work include promoting best practices in recruitment, retention, culture change from the top, and advancing industry-wide learnings.
Racial Equity Resource Library
Under the guidance of NPH’s Senior Racial Equity & Inclusion Program Manager, Monica Joe, we’ve compiled a Racial Equity & Inclusion Resource Library. This library is designed to provide you with quick and handy access to high quality and timely resources on racial justice practices. We encourage you to use this library as a tool in your journey toward embedding racial justice work in your own organization.
Racial Equity Statement
After many years of work within NPH and throughout our member organizations to deepen our approach to racial equity and inclusion, we’ve undergone a reflective process to consider why and how we’re approaching this work. The result of this process is our racial equity statement.
