The National Law Center on Homelessness and Poverty (NLCHP) scheduled a webinar, “The Human Right to Housing: A Report Card on U.S. Policy,” for December 10. The webinar will be held at 2 pm ET.
The webinar will cover the findings of a forthcoming update to the report card in NLCHP’s report, Simply Unacceptable: Homelessness and the Human Right to Housing in the U.S. (see Memo, 6/17/11). The report card scores the United States on its response to homelessness and its compliance with the human right to housing, which consists of seven elements: security of tenure; availability of services, materials, and infrastructure; affordability; accessibility; habitability; and location and cultural adequacy.
The webinar will feature the report card's primary author, Eric Tars of NLCHP, as well as other NLCHP attorneys.
