Cities are home to extraordinary solidarity and are sites of ongoing social justice struggle. In a highly urbanized world, they are key to a socially and ecologically just and democratic society. However, over the course of the past year, the global pandemic has brought into focus the failure of our housing systems. Social justice movements in New York and Berlin have worked to both stem the immediate tide of evictions and homelessness, and to think beyond the crisis.
On April 27 – 29, the Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung will bring together organizers and local policy makers from Germany and the U.S. to imagine more equitable housing futures. The two-day virtual event will feature peer learning workshops and public panels covering both policy and organizing processes.
