Event Description

This convening brings together scholars and movement leaders for a capacious discussion of social housing inspired by a white paper published by colleagues at the Urban Democracy Lab at NYU calling for the formation of a Social Housing Development Authority. Centering housing justice movements, the event will explore how social housing might transform the land/debt economy of racial capitalism, mobilize a public stake in property and public investment in housing, and build collective ownership and stewardship of land and housing.
