#RightToARoof Campaign

On Saturday, Dec 10, 2016 300 San Diegans came together to launch the #RightToARoof campaign for affordable, quality homes for all of our families. Together, we marked International Human Rights Day for the second annual community-led “Human Rights Day of Action” event. We filled a vacant lot in Southeast San Diego and held space as local residents who have experienced poor quality, unaffordable housing and homelessness shared their stories. The #RightToARoof campaign calls for urgent action by San Diego representatives to address the longstanding housing crisis affecting our families.
