So, with all the stuff going on through Take Back the Land Rochester (re: 19th ward house eviction) and the realities I ponder daily when I do my job fulfilling the mission of Flower City Habitat for Humanity, I think about this question a lot: is housing a human right?
I believe that every human being deserves access to a safe place to live. I would like if you took a second today to think and maybe write about this topic. Many of us don’t think twice about this issue because, one way or another, we have a place to sleep and eat that is fairly secure and comfortable. Not necessarily glamorous, but we know it will be there for us.
