Abstract

Abstract:

Homes for All: the three words have become a national rallying cry. They extend to housing the principle that has already made Medicare for All and free college hallmarks of a rising democratic left—the principle that, especially in a wealthy country like the United States, everyone has a right to shelter, healthcare, and education. This generation of housing activists' questions are beginning to break into national policy debates—questions of collective ownership, decommodified land, and housing under democratic control. What might such housing look like? The co-authors outline four models that have successfully met housing needs by partially, or fully, circumventing the market and putting control in the hands of communities.
