Housing is a Right

EVENT: Housing is a Right

Why the market won’t fix the housing crisis

People require shelter, which means that housing should be a basic human right. Nobody should be outbid for the roof over their head. We desperately need to put forward the idea that homes are not commodities, and neither is our ability to move about and live healthy lives in our cities. One doesn’t work without the other–they need to be cultivated in tandem.

There is a crisis of–to be specific–affordable housing, which the vast majority of us are pushed into competition for. We need to unite and force city and state governments to grant something to the ordinary workers who vote for them–and decommodify housing for the millions of families living at or below the poverty line, with no hope of being able to compete for housing at the ridiculous “market rate. Come to this public meeting on the housing crisis and discuss “Yimby” perspectives and the alternative socialist perspective.
