Conversations about homes in New York City: who has one, who doesn’t, and why

Premiere episode Friday February 19th at 7:30pm

Home Is A Human Right is an online conversation series about housing in New York City featuring New Yorkers who have lost a home or are fighting to keep one and other guests with big picture perspectives on this crisis. Each episode brings together a pair of guests for an exploration of the unequal foundations upon which our city is built, that determine which populations have access to wealth and security, often literally realized in the form of homes and properties, and which don’t. Guest speakers either have lived expertise of housing instability, complementary perspectives on the history and present of inequity within our society, or both.
Everyone is welcome: audiences who have never experienced a loss of housing as well as those currently living without stable homes. Addressing the disparity of New York City will require a convergence of creative-problem solving--  only by bringing people together from across demographics and backgrounds to circulate knowledge, resources, and inspiration can we create a city in which all people have the home that every human deserves. 
The series is hosted by activist and oral historian Nico Fuentes.

Home Is A Human Right is produced by a collective of volunteers working within the Housing Team of Mutual Aid NYC, with the guidance and support of citywide leaders of the movement for housing justice.
