Don't Move, Fight Back! Housing Justice for Grand Rapids NOW!

Sun, Aug 5, 2018 - 6:00pm to 8:00pm

Join renters and homeowners who want to organize for housing justice on Sunday, August 5th at 6:00 pm in Garfield Park to build a platform that says "housing is a human right." The city’s corporate developer and landlord funded agenda isn’t what working people in Grand Rapids need. But we can create a people’s housing agenda for justice that centers on renters, low-income people and communities of color having a right to the city, and plan for actions to organize for a housing program that puts people over profit.

This will be our second public meeting to discuss the campaign. The agenda will include:
- Discussing our experiences as renters and homeowners
- Discussing organizing tactics
- Critiquing our city leadership's response to the housing crisis
- Developing a list of concrete demands and slogans
- And more

Light refreshments will be provided.

Please contact this page for questions or if your organization would like to participate.

Garfield Park, Grand Rapids
