In partnership with the Mary Turner Center for Advocacy, I am excited to announce the Housing Justice Academy 2021. The academy will consist of seven monthly workshops designed to give you practical skills and knowledge for community organizing and civic activism centered around housing justice. During these workshops the cohort will engage in educational seminars, policy advocacy and case studies.

The cohort’s commitment is from July 2021 to January 2022 on the 2nd Thursdays of each month from 6-8 PM.

The first three sessions will be on Thursday, July 8th, Thursday, August 12th, and Saturday, September 9th. Our partners are the United Community Housing Coalition and Progress Michigan.
