Description of Razing Liberty Square:

Liberty City, Miami, was home to one of the oldest segregated public housing projects in the U.S. Now with rising sea levels, the neighborhood’s higher ground has become something else: real estate gold. Wealthy property owners push inland to higher ground, creating a speculators’ market in the historically Black neighborhood previously ignored by developers and policy-makers alike.

Special Guest

We are delighted that Christina Rosales, Housing and Land Justice Director for Power Switch Action, Seattle WA. Christina Rosales works with affiliates to build and grow housing and land justice campaigns and strategies that advance housing as a human right and put housing and land in community control.

Special Guests: Christina Rosales - Housing and Land Justice Director, Seattle, WA for Power Switch Action
