Join the National Law Center on Homelessness & Poverty at the 2019 National Forum on the Human Right to Housing. This year’s Forum will focus on our response to the Martin v. Boise decision in the 9th Circuit and beyond. People who are currently or formerly homeless, attorneys, government officials, and advocates from across the country will gather in Washington, D.C., to organize and strategize on ways we can work to end the criminalization of people experiencing homelessness and advocate for the human right to housing. We are pleased to announce this year’s speakers from organizations such as:

National Coalition for the Homeless

San Francisco Coalition on Homelessness

Picture the Homeless

Western Regional Advocacy Project

ACLU of Hawai’i

Disability Rights CA

And many more!

Our keynote speaker this year is Amanda Andere, Chief Executive Officer of Funders Together to End Homelessness.
