Keeping in line with AFSC rich history of providing resources, training, and capacity for emerging grassroots movements, the Georgia Peace and Conflict Resolution program organized a retreat for some of Atlanta's lead housing justice organizers.
It was an opportunity to reflect on the work, build community, strengthen analysis, and develop strategic plans.
Georgia is on of the hardest hit by the housing crisis, and it's been an epicenter for the housing justice. The retreat brought organizers and impacted communities together which was exciting. Renters, homeowners, and the shelterless all in one room as equals seeing through the framework of housing as a human right.
One thing that the weekend made clear is that today's impacted resident is tomorrows movement leader.
