    A Place to Call Home: Exploring Housing in Oregon

    At the most basic level, a home is a place that gives you shelter, protecting you from the weather and unsafe situations. It’s also where you live your life, eat your meals, and raise your family. If housing is a basic human right, why do so many people struggle to find or keep housing? How do we as individuals and as a society make decisions that undermine the idea that we all have a right to a home?

    This is the focus of A Place to Call Home: Exploring Housing in Oregon, a free conversation with Cristina Palacios on Thursday, November 30th at 6:30 pm at Northeast Coalition of Neighborhoods, 4815 NE 7th Ave. Portland, OR 97211. This program is hosted by NECN and sponsored by Oregon Humanities.

    Through the Conversation Project, Oregon Humanities offers free programs that engage community members in thoughtful, challenging conversations about ideas critical to our daily lives and our state’s future. For more information about this free community discussion, please contact Laura Becker at laura@necoalition.org or 503.388.6088

    About the Facilitator: Cristina Palacios was born in Tolimán, Jalisco, México, and started organizing at age fourteen. Most recently, Christina worked with Community Alliance of Tenants as a senior organizer. She is driven by a passion for housing and social justice and the belief that everyone—regardless, their income, disability, race or immigration status—deserves a safe and healthy place to call home.
