Revolutionary Lawyering, Homeless Self-Organizing and Systemic Change: What COVID-19 has taught us and where do we go from here?


On the evening of April 23, 2021, the National Union of the Homeless and the Lawyers Guild Committee on Housing and Homelessness co-hosted a nationwide online gathering to discuss the intersection of law and the frontline struggle for housing during COVID-19 and beyond.

The focus of this gathering was the role of the progressive and revolutionary legal community within the process of the growing self-organization of the poor and unhoused as homelessness explodes and mass evictions loom. This was not a technical "how to" event, but a broader discussion of linking day-to-day "survival" work to the goal of systemic change and housing as a legal entitlement.
