Culture Series: Fighting For Home

July 18 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm


Event Details:

The 1970s was a period of intense gentrification in DC — but the decade was also marked by the most effective and creative tenant organizing in DC’s history to date. Join Amanda Huron, an Associate Professor of Interdisciplinary Social Sciences and Political Science at the UDC, and a panel of three people who organized tenants in 1970s DC to share their experiences, and reflect on what organizers today can learn from the successes and failures of the 1970s.

As DC, once again, is in the midst of a housing crisis, many tenants are again responding by organizing in creative ways. We hope this panel helps people today learn from past efforts, and imagine new ways to claim home in the city.

ASL Interpretation will be provided.
