Right to Housing Forum
Every other year, the National Homelessness Law Center hosts a National Forum on the Human Right to Housing. People who are currently or formerly homeless, attorneys, government officials, and advocates from across the country gather in Washington, D.C., to organize and strategize on ways we can work to end the criminalization of people experiencing homelessness.
Our National Forum provides a valuable opportunity for people and organizations that do diverse work in the housing and homelessness sector to work together to create innovative and effective ways to fight homelessness.

Our 2022 Right to Housing Forum was held on November 16-17 hosted by Akin & Gump. Our Keynote Speaker, Marc Dones of the King County Regional Homelessness Authority, delivered an engaging and thoughtful opening speech which set the tone for the rest of the forum. Marc highlighted the importance of story telling and narrative building in our work, reminding all of us that reality is simply an agreed upon set of narratives that can always be challenged and changed.
Our hope is that you will watch, share and learn from the offered recordings from our 2022 forum so that we can build on the momentum of these conversations and push toward a future without homelessness.
