Elena Popp Discusses Progressive Housing Advocacy
At Stonewall's Meeting on Monday April 23, we featured a presentation by Elena Popp, CEO & Founder of the Eviction Defense Network (EDN) that provided a progressive overview of housing at the state and local level.
Elena Popp discussed the challenges facing our region where we are seeing growing inequality and homelessness and less and less affordable housing. She also discussed solutions.
"We need to have temporary shelter solutions... we need real shelters and transitional housing programs where people can stabilize before they are housed. We also need to build housing... housing that reaches the poorest of the poor."
"Solution one is build housing; solution two is work on zoning and other things that encourage the placement of affordable housing; solution three is protect tenants."
"We can stop gentrification in its tracks. All you have to do is get on social media and talk to your immediate neighbors and explain their rights and obligations to them. Protect your rights. Know your obligations."
