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

Date: 
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.

Garfield Park, Grand Rapids
