NORTH AMERICAN DAY OF HOUSING ACTION, November 20th

Leave a comment

Join the North American Day of Housing Action. Last year, the National Day of Housing Action built momentum for the National Affordable Housing Trust Fund Campaign, is a nationwide effort to produce new housing in volumes not seen since the New Deal. Affordable housing construction means new jobs in these hard times, but many federal politicians have not committed to this needed legislation. This year on November 20th, we will continue to encourage them to do so.

On this day, we — people experiencing homelessness, students, union workers, religious communities, and housing organizations — will demand that politicians endorse the Trust Fund. We will do so by organizing local actions designed to draw attention to both the current housing crisis and a solution to it. Please let us know your state or local organization’s plans for November 20th by notifying Right to a Roof (R2AR), part of the Coalition On Homelessness, San Francisco at housingworkgroup@ yahoo.com.

The North American Day of Housing Action is presented by R2AR, the National Student Campaign Against Hunger and Homelessness and the National Coalition for the Homeless.
