This is an exciting new domain for Coho/US. Just think about the LARGE number of posts to Coho-L over the years from people seeking or supporting low-cost cohousing. There will be many ways to support this work over the coming months. David's request is a no-cost way to help the volunteers who have already put many hours into getting this rolling. If you have ANY coho-friendly contacts in DC who you think might help us reach the people described below, please tell them about this request. An effective (and easy) way might be to forward David's email with a brief, personal header from you that explains why you believe that affordable cohousing is in the world's best interest. In community, Craig Ragland Coho/US Exec Dir P.S. Another way to support this work is by attending the 2011 National Cohousing Conference. If we show up for that event en masse it will send a strong message. Friday, June 17th is the day to attend if you want to mingle with the many policity-affecting people we hope to attract to the conference. There is a Friday-only registration option (for $150) which is described on the website: http://conference.cohousing.org/2011/register On Mon, Jan 3, 2011 at 8:48 AM, David Entin <davidentin [at] comcast.net> wrote: > > The Cohousing Association of the United States has established an Affordable > Cohousing Task Group that is spearheading efforts to make future cohousing > more affordable for a greater diversity of income levels.
