This event is part of a national effort to bring together students, housing justice organizations, and renters citywide to share knowledge and experience in the fight for affordable and equitable housing and stable communities. We are uniting to take action against the ongoing displacement and gentrification we see in our neighborhoods.
Our goals for our local assembly are to:
- Strengthen New York City’s student population as a significant resource in the fight for housing justice.
- Exchange knowledge with college and university students and youth about the city’s housing crisis and how it affects them, how students can be both agents of and subject to displacement, and how they can work for change in tangible ways.
- To facilitate the connection of student and youth organizers to current efforts by tenant organizers and advocates
