Panel Summary

This event will feature local activist/hip hop artist Mic Crenshaw (formerly with Housing Is For Everyone and Up and Out of Poverty), Kali Akuno from Cooperation Jackson and Jennifer Bennetch from Philadelphia Housing Action. We will be discussing models for housing that can exist outside the forces of the real estate market and build a movement for community-controlled housing.  

Series Summary
Reclaim, Remain, Rebuild is a series of forums bringing together some of the best housing advocates nationally and locally to share their work around various aspects of housing justice. From campaigns around rent control, tenant organizing, houseless villages, housing co-ops, land trusts, rent strikes and foreclosure/eviction defense, we need a diverse toolkit of strategies to reverse the effects of the waves of displacement, gentrification and rampant real estate speculation we have seen over the last couple decades, and combat the assaults we know are coming from landlords and developers as the crisis deepens. With the economic crisis triggered by the coronavirus threatening to displace millions of people from their living situations in the coming months, right now is a critical time to start finding each other and working together to build campaigns and coalitions that can turn the tables on powerful property owners and build a strong and diverse movement for housing justice.
