[Act] Support Everyone’s Basic Right to Adequate Shelter

 

If you have been to developing countries or have seen poverty housing in any developed nation  you know there are billions of people around the world who desperately need adequate housing. The first Monday of every October has been designated by the United Nations as World Habitat Day. It serves as a reminder to all of us that everyone deserves adequate shelter.

This year’s theme is Changing Cities, Building Opportunities because when cities prosper so do its residents.

Action: Habitat for Humanity is urging everyone to pledge their support for adequate shelter for all. You can sign Habitat’s Pledge to End Poverty Housing to call on key decision makers to:

  • Recognize the role of housing in communities
  • Make affordable, adequate housing a priority
  • Change the systems and policies that lead to poverty housing
