Housing issues are in the headlines every day, but do those stories help or hinder housing and health advocates? To understand how journalists frame housing and homelessness issues, and how those choices shape long-term narratives about the complex intersections of housing and health equity, PHI’s Berkeley Media Studies Group (BMSG) analyzed news about housing and health equity from media markets across the country.

In this webinar, Housing Now! California and PHI’s BMSG will share findings and recommendations from the report as well as helpful media advocacy tools to help housing and health advocates be strategic about their communication strategies. BMSG’s new resource, Housing, Equity, and Health in U.S. News, 2020-2021, has the full set of findings and recommendations.

The evidence is clear: Health depends on access to safe, stable housing. Unfortunately, a legacy of inequitable and unjust housing policies limit access to housing for many people, based on factors like race, immigration status, disability status, income-level, gender, and sexuality. These systemic barriers to having a quality, affordable home are key drivers of health inequities in the United States.

To understand the specific nuances of how news coverage frames the complex intersections of housing and health equity, PHI’s Berkeley Media Studies Group analyzed news about housing and health equity from media markets across the country. The report also includes messaging and framing recommendations for housing and health equity advocates, as well as journalists.
