Reading Group on Alternatives to an Unjust Housing System

In many American cities, a person earning minimum wage cannot afford the average 1-bedroom apartment. It's not hard to conclude the housing system is broken. But it’s also difficult to imagine a different alternative. The Pittsburgh Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) believe housing is a human right and shouldn’t be commodified. The DSA is playing host to a Reading Group on Alternatives to an Unjust Housing System at Community Forge in Wilkinsburg to explore alternative ideas about housing. Some of the questions participants hope to have answered: Are there housing alternatives that exist outside the market? How can housing and land be made public and how can it become affordable for all? A "Homes for All" pamphlet, available for free on its website, is suggested reading before attending.
