Cathy Albisa on GRITtv to Discuss a Human Rights-Based Vision for Social Housing

Cathy Albisa, NESRI Executive Director, and Rob Robinson of NESRI ally Picture the Homeless discussed public housing, homelessness and the foreclosure crisis on GRITtv with host Laura Flanders. The housing crisis was where the economic meltdown started: a bubble popped, and foreclosures spread across the country. Now houses stand vacant while people sleep on the streets in record cold, and in some places public housing is actually destroyed to make way for new development. In response to this situation, Alibsa and Robinson insist the key is to build a social movement for the human right to housing.
