South Eastern Housing Justice Academy In Atlanta!


American Friends Service Committee and Occupy Our Homes would like to invite you to attend our first ever Housing Justice Academy in Atlanta October 26-28.

The housing crisis has hit the Southeast especially hard. Thousands of families have already lost their homes, neighborhoods have been destroyed, and despite the media’s attempt to claim a recovery, foreclosures still continue at three times their pre-2007 levels.

Over the last two years, Occupy Our Homes groups around the country have helped hundreds of families fight to stay in their homes- and win with! In Atlanta the American Friends Service Committee has played a key role in providing resources and organizing experience to the movement. We’ve had dozens of victories, winning homes, farms, and even churches back from the bank. We know that the only way to hold Wall Street accountable is to come together and organize–to create a world where people, not banks, have control over their communities.

 For three days this month, we’ll bring together people together to learn tactics and strategies to defend our homes, participate in non-violent direct action, and work on building a housing justice movement in the Southeast.

The academy is open to anyone who would like to attend.  The registration fee for the general public is $50, which will cover the cost of the trainings, materials, space, and meals each day as well as help provide scholarships to those needing assistance traveling to Atlanta.  For students, senior citizens, or residents facing foreclosure or eviction, the cost is $20. We would like to encourage those who can pay this fee to do so to help support others who cannot. However, no one will be turned away for lack of funds.

Childcare will be provided, and we will strive to provide lodging in Atlanta for those who need it as well. Please indicate on the registration page if you need assistance with lodging or transportation and someone will follow up with you soon to arrange it.
