Launching the USACAI at the whole of USSF In the context of historic levels of homelessness, displacement, forced evictions, and foreclosures, some 100 housing activists from many parts of the USA and Canada voted unanimously to create the USA-Canada Alliance of Inhabitants (USACAI). They had come to a June 24 session at the US Social Forum entitled How to Claim the Right to Housing and the City: Take Over, Take Back, and Take It to the World .
Over 20,000 people from across the United States and the world will unite at USSF in Detroit from June 22 – 26 to articulate visions and plan concrete strategies to strengthen and build our movements for social justice. The USSF is grounded in an understanding that successful social movements are always led by those most affected. The Poverty Working Group of the USSF has been working for months to bring poor people from across the country to Detroit for this historic opportunity to unite and create strategic plans for action.
