Cities are more expensive than ever, with an urgent need for affordable housing hitting DC and communities all over the country. At the same time, the climate crisis is forcing us to rethink how we build and order our lives. Together, these pressures offer an opportunity — the chance to use frameworks like the Green New Deal to remake housing in the United States and build a sustainable, just life for everyone.
Join Metro DC DSA and Greater Greater Washington for a panel discussion on housing and the Green New Deal, moderated by Jeremiah Lowery of DC For Democracy!
Panel members include:
Alex Baca, Housing Program Organizer, Greater Greater Washington
Patrick Houston, Climate & Inequality Organizer, New York Communities for Change
Daniel Aldana Cohen, Assistant Professor of Sociology, University of Pennsylvania
ASL interpretation will be provided.
