An Equitable Recovery Agenda for New York: The Right to Housing
Organized by Professors Ron Shiffman and Edward Bautista, this series brings together a diverse group of community-based activists, organized labor representatives, workers, educators, policy advocates, and elected and government officials in a post-pandemic environment to address long-deferred critical issues.

The Friday, April 9th session on the “Right to Housing” will address the myriad issues of housing affordability and housing justice. Unresolved issues of gentrification and economic displacement are made more severe by a looming Covid 19-related eviction crisis. Now with a national and international crisis of climate-related displacement on the horizon, there is an urgent need and opportunity to update our conception of housing not as a commodity, but as a right. Considering that housing, economic, and political systems work to maintain the status quo, how are organizers, activists, and policy makers seizing the ‘moment' to ensure that recovery efforts do not return to the old normal, but finally begin to address the interconnected issues of racial/environmental injustice, disparities in income and wealth, and other exclusionary practices.

More details are included in the confirmation email you will receive after you register for this event.
