The gathering was organized by the Housing Justice Foundation with a simple goal; to bring leaders in the housing justice movement together in order to share our successes and shortcomings, and begin to build a stronger collective vision of what more organized national coordination could look like.
One thing that struck me was that many group's struggles were other groups strengths; this dynamic offered lots of practical skill shares.
Perhaps more important then anything is the opportunity to put a name to a face and build real relationships with folks doing this work around the country. A big thanks to the Housing Justice Foundation for making the gathering happen!
