FEARLESS CITIES: NORTH AMERICA REGIONAL MUNICIPALIST SUMMIT
July 28, 2018 - New York City

For photos of this event, visit our Flickr pageThis year marks the 50th anniversary of Henri Lefebvre’s famous manifesto “The Right to the City.” Published in the aftermath of the 1968 May-June protests in Paris, the term “Right to the City” has since been used as a rallying call for affordable housing, expanded notions of citizenship and accessible public spaces. In this workshop we will discuss the “Right to the City” through the lens of insurgent local electoral campaigns, community land trusts, and the development of organizing through local, national, and international networks.
