Release of Grassroots Report on US Mission of the UN Special Rapporteur on Right to Adequate Housing


The purpose of this report is to document the critical role that community-based groups, in particular members of the Campaign to National Restore Housing Rights, played in ensuring that the United Nations Special Rapporteur on the Right to Adequate Housing’s first mission to the United States captured the housing struggle a significant number of people in the U.S. have been facing for many years. We hoped to demonstrate the links between this long standing struggle and the crisis facing the newly impacted after the financial and housing crisis that emerged in 2007-2008. This report also celebrates and acknowledges the growing human right to housing movement in the United Sates, a movement of activists, grassroots organizations and advocates that traverse geographic, racial, and economic boundaries.
