A Place to Call Home

January 20, 2018

At the most basic level, a home is a place that gives you shelter, protecting you from the weather and unsafe situations. It’s also where you live your life, eat your meals, raise your family. If housing is a basic human right, why do so many people struggle to find or keep housing? How do we as individuals and as a society make decisions that undermine the idea that we all have a right to home?

Join facilitator Cristina Palacios in a conversation that will ask you to share your own experiences with housing and explore the ways that we value—and discount—home as a basic human right.

Funded project of Oregon Humanities, a state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
