Climate and Affordable Housing: Envisioning a Greener, More Equitable Future
Sat, May 7, 1 - 3pm
Please join Mercy Housing Lakefront, Sunrise Movement, and Weinberg/Newton for a workshop connecting climate and housing.
There is a huge housing crisis in this country, with many people without housing or unable to afford quality housing. We must fight for expansive quality, affordable, and green housing options.
Mercy Housing Lakefront will share a brief overview of the history of affordable housing in the Chicago metropolitan area, their efforts to advance sustainability through the development and operations of their affordable housing portfolio, and how individuals can get involved to influence the development of housing in their communities.
Sunrise Movement will lead an engaging discussion, reimagining the future of housing, through the lens of the climate crisis.
