Join Annie Howard and Seven Benjamin from the Chicago Housing Justice League for a presentation on the many ways housing insecurity manifests in Chicago.
The Chicago Housing Justice League will discuss a concept called "housing troubles" - that offers a framework for identifying and describing the myriad challenges that people face regarding housing in Chicago. They will also present on their advocacy work including the just cause for eviction campaign.
The Chicago Housing Justice League is a coalition of member-led organizations that organize around housing and racial justice. They are committed to challenging existing housing policies that negatively impact Chicago neighborhoods, particularly low-income Black and Latinx communities. Recognizing the urgent nature of their work, particularly in addressing the long-term health and housing consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Chicago Housing Justice League are committed to building power amongst the working class, understanding that the necessary housing reforms our city needs will not be handed down to people from above, but must be fought for at every turn.
There will be a shared meal and, following it, a Red Line Service community meeting.
