Housing within a Corporate Capitalist Society

Our intention in this forum is to concentrate upon potential solutions to the very real crisis in affordable and accessible housing. In order to fully understand this crisis and how we got here, we must look at the question of why there is homelessness in the wealthiest country in the history of the world and why there is such a lack of affordable housing throughout this country. In this workshop we will look at the housing crisis within the context of corporate capitalism, to understand how that shapes the housing challenges we face in Franklin County, and across the country, and how that understanding can help us act most effectively in finding/creating housing for all.
