These events provide opportunities for education, dialogue, networking and action planning.
Faith and Housing Justice Weekend seeks to foster a deeper understanding of the intersections between faith and housing justice, emphasizing the moral imperative to ensure everyone has access to safe, affordable and sustainable housing. It encourages people of all faiths to come together in solidarity and work toward creating just and equitable housing systems. Participants may learn about advocacy strategies, hear inspiring testimonies from those affected by housing injustice and explore innovative approaches to affordable housing. The event also aims to build partnerships among faith-based organizations, housing advocates, policymakers and community leaders to collectively address housing inequality.
