The Social Housing Coalition

January 24, 2013 by Carnegie Community Action Project

Check out our facebook page.

The Social Housing Coalition is a non-partisan, volunteer coalition spanning Vancouver and the Lower Mainland, and reaching out to the rest of British Columbia. We are a grassroots coalition comprised of those impacted by the current housing crisis, and we are determined to make social housing a major issue in the upcoming provincial election and beyond.

You can participate in this popular movement for social housing in a number of ways. You can join the Social Housing Coalition and be part of the planning for this campaign. We meet on the first Wednesday evening of each month (7:00 pm at the Carnegie Community Centre theatre), with sub-committees meeting to discuss research, finances and outreach throughout the month. You can also contribute financially to support the work of the coalition as it builds the social housing campaign.

Another important and practical way of getting involved in this campaign is to organize and/or participate in a STAND for social housing. We are asking people in the Lower Mainland and throughout the province to stand on a busy intersection in their neighbourhood or town for one hour (noon t0 1:00 pm) every Saturday beginning on Nov 24th, hold up a banner that says “Social Housing Now”, and distribute a leaflet that outlines the housing crisis and the social housing campaign. This can be a simple, fun and inspiring way to actively participate in this movement for housing and social justice.


Together we can make it happen
