Today housing insecurity is a generalized phenomenon, driving forward policy solutions under the guise of housing for all. As many look towards the future, they’ve looked past the fight to preserve public housing in growing favor of so-called “social housing” policy solutions. This half-day mini-conference will kick off with an open conversation led by tenants leading the fight to preserve public housing in New York City. The organizers are members of Save Section 9, Residents to Preserve Public Housing, Neighbors Helping Neighbors-Rockaway Hub, the Committee for Independent Community Action, and Justice for All Coalition. After they share their analysis of the current housing climate in NYC, an international panel of housing academics will share comparative research and perspectives on public and social housing across cities. This second open conversation features Raquel Rolnik, Glyn Robbins, Sneha Sumanth, Kristen Hackett, and Jaime Jover.
