Housing is A Human Right: We Can Make it Happen

A Virtual Exploration and Call to Action

Housing in the US has become a commodity only available to the highest bidders—whether that be buyers or renters. Those who do not meet the financial challenge become homeless and are treated as if their situation is a personal failing, not the result of systemic issues designed to accommodate those with the resources. We believe that this system must change.

Greening Greenfield and Franklin County Continuing the Political Revolution (FCCPR) developed the Housing Is a Human Right Forum to help solve the housing crisis as we strive to achieve social equity, economic vitality and environmental quality in our region.
This forum will consider options for change and engage the residents of Franklin County and North Quabbin in making that change happen.
We will invite you to understand the housing situation and become active change agents.
The Keynote Panel on March 27, 2021, will set the stage. The workshops will dive deeper and explore new ideas. Join us in making our communities more healthy, supportive and inclusive.
Thank you to the Markham Nathan Fund for Social Justice and the New England Grassroots Environment Fund for their support of this forum.
We would like to thank our co-sponsors who are working with us in this effort: Franklin Regional Council of Governments (FRCOG), Greenfield Racial Justice, New England Learning Center for Women in Transition (NELCWIT) and Racial Justice Rising.
