    Meet the Housing Justice Team

    Meet the Housing Justice Team

    The Housing Justice Team is a group of people with lived experience of housing instability or houselessness who want to change our collective housing future.  The group started without a predetermined outcome, and what emerged organically was a space where advocates across the country chose to rely on each other for support and shared-learning while dreaming up our own and our collective impact on our world. 
    In this episode we’ll talk with the team and how our impact and vision emerged out of an authentic process for truly listening and hearing one another, with our whole selves at the core of the relationship, alongside some structure to keep us iterating and emerging toward what we wanted. It was created in mutual exchange. And in the end, each of our lives were significantly transformed as a result of being a part of this team.
    Housing Justice Team Guests: Alexander Perez, Julisa Abad, LaQuita Love-Limo, Tiffany Haynes, and Wendell WIlliams. Alesha Alexee is also a member, but wasn’t able to join us for the recorded conversation.

    Intimacy, Community Ownership, and Housing Justice

    Intimacy, Community Ownership, and Housing Justice

    When we talk about community ownership, we’re talking about moving decision-making power to people in the community who have lived experience of the systems we are working to transform. In this way, community ownership is central to housing justice. It’s the root-system; it gives us the platform we need to grow transformed structures where people can thrive. In this conversation, we are starting with intimacy and relationshi as the seed that allows those roots to grow and develop. Our guest, Whimzi Ha brings her magic to this conversation.

    Belonging as a Path Toward Housing Justice

    Belonging as a Path Toward Housing Justice

    This episode is a conversation about the concepts of othering and belonging, and the impact we might have if we could move housing and homeless systems and structures from ones that are built around “othering” over to ones that are built around “belonging.” We are diving into the ideas and thoughts of John Powell- his teachings, speaking and writing, and that of the Othering & Belonging Institute. And we talk about how belonging has guided the Regional Kitchen Table in the Twin Cities Metro Region.
    I’m joined in this episode by LaQuita Limo. LaQuita is a Minnesotan by way of Mississippi. She is a mom, an educator, a student of life, and a housing justice activist. In our conversation she talks about telling hard truths and inviting people who she may disagree with into a conversation with clarity, grace, and maybe sometimes also a little charm.

    Change Yourself to Change the World Toward Housing Justice

    Change Yourself to Change the World Toward Housing Justice

    You might recognize the saying “change yourself to change the world.” It’s an idea that a fair number of movement leaders have leaned into throughout history. In this episode, we explore the ideas that come from the life, activism, and teachings and ways of being of a beautiful ancestor, Grace Lee Boggs and how they will help us get to housing justice.  Alexander “Lex” Rey Perez (Ifa Segun Funmi) joins us in this episode to talk about his ideas on collective responsibility and who we are in conversation, shifting from being thing-oriented to person-oriented in our housing systems, and how grace and gratitude might lead us to the housing future we want to see.
