Free Audio Training: Housing is a Human Right: Human Rights Framing for Housing & Homeless Advocates
Free Audio Training on Housing is a Human Right: Human Rights Framing for Housing & Homeless Advocates February 25, 2009 2:00 - 3:00 pm ET. Overview:
The human rights system provides an important framework for connecting civil rights issues with economic and social justice. As part of the movement to reframe the crisis in affordable and public housing as a violation of the right to housing, NLCHP is helping to coordinate regional Congressional field hearings in Chicago, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, New Orleans, and New York City. In this webinar, we will share basic information about the human rights framework and how to frame domestic issues of affordable housing and homelessness in human rights terms.

Somewhat relatedly, Gapminder.org has created a flash presentation called "dollar street" that showcases the quality of housing at various income levels, moving up from a $1/day. The presentation is interesting if not as promising in practice as the premise.
