Columbus Housing Justice

USSF 2010 | August 30, 2010

CHJ attended the US Social Forum in Detroit, May 2010. We networked with housing justice groups across the country who are fighting for housing for the lowest-income. They are calling for a range of solutions — a stop to evictions, stop to foreclosures, stop to the demolition of public housing, and a switch from utilizing housing as an investment toward using it as a HOME.  All groups agree that those with the lowest incomes should have as much of a say in the decisions about their housing as those with the highest incomes.  CHJ members developed our understanding of the visions various groups are working toward, as well as our own ideas of what vision we want to work toward as we continue into the future.  We decided to flush these out more at a retreat sometime this summer.
