No Place Like Home: Housing as a Human Right

The right to adequate housing, including the ability to live “somewhere that is in keeping with your culture” with “access to appropriate services, schools, and employment,” is enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and yet, around the world, cities are becoming progressively unequal, with vulnerable minorities being pushed out through gentrification and spatial segregation. This often has a ripple effect, deepening inequity and limiting socio, cultural and economic diversification in areas with privileged infrastructure.

On July 20th, 2023, at 10:00am (ET), join “No Place Like Home: Housing as a Human Right,” a webinar hosted by the International Coalition of Sites of Conscience that will examine social and affordable housing initiatives that are working to democratize access to urban spaces, foster co-existence, and counter systems that expel people with less economic power to peripheral areas deprived of services and opportunities.
