Public meeting: A place of our own. Tackling the housing crisis.

Wednesday, May 30, 2012 - 18:00

In 2004 the Fabians held a forum titled 'A Place of Our Own: Housing Problems and What Can Be Done About Them' at which experts discussed the desperate need for affordable housing for all Australians. Speakers remarked that although the crisis was real and obvious it received little media attention. At least one thing has changed – we now have a vigorous public debate about the causes and solutions to the cost of housing. Speakers: Sarah Toohey (campaign manager, Australians for Affordable Housing); Richard Wynne (MP for Richmond, Shadow Minister for Housing); Sarah Kahn (manager Policy and Communications, Council to Homeless Persons). 6pm. Melbourne City Conference Centre, 333 Swanston St. City. $10 non-members, $5 members/concession. RSVP recommended.
