Occupy Homes MN would like to invite you to attend our first ever Housing Justice Academy Nov 16-17.
On November 16 and 17, our Housing Justice Academy will bring together people from all over the region to train in home defense, vacant home reclamation, non-violent direct action, and more, and then on November 18 we'll use the skills we learned to take action together.
- Nov 16th 10am-6pm [[Training]]
- Nov 17th 10pm-6pm [[Training]]
- Nov 18th 11am [[Action]]
The academy is open to anyone who wants to attend. Occupy Our Homes is a movement that relies on supporter funding. While there is a small registration fee for attending the academy ($50 for general, $20 for students, seniors, or anyone facing a housing crisis, free for low-income participants), no one will be turned away for lack of resources. The registration fee will cover the cost of the trainings, materials, and food for three days. Additionally, we will strive to assist those in need with lodging and transportation to Minneapolis, though we can not guarantee either.
Over the last two years, Occupy Our Homes groups around the country have helped hundreds of families fight to stay in their homes- and win! In Minneapolis we've had dozens of victories from keeping families in their homes to passing the MN Homeowners Bill of Rights. We know that the only way to hold Wall Street accountable is to come together and organize--to create a world where people, not banks, have control over their communities.
If you have any questions or would like to help out with planning the academy (especially if you have space to host out of town guests) please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
