Join us for “The Right to Remain: Learning from Housing Justice Praxis in Vancouver,” a series of conversations with housing justice scholars and activists from Vancouver and Los Angeles. The Right to Remain Collective, based in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside, works to preserve the city’s vital reserve of existing affordable housing stock – single room occupancy hotels, or SROs. Visiting members of the Collective will be in conversation with Los Angeles-based organizers and researchers.
