Our New Statement of Principles

The Planners Network Steering Committee developed a new statement of principles in November, 2021. View the statement here.

Activism in the Real Estate State

Writing in Capital City, Samuel Stein outlined the challenges for urban planning in a time when tenant activism is one of the few counterweights aligned against powerful interests in real estate as a financialized investment.

Drawing from the work of housing activists from Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver, this discussion, held on January 25th, reflects on strategies and struggles for housing justice in a time of growing housing precarity and evictions.
