Love your point about housing being a right, not charity!! I know there are sadly some international human rights treaties that the US has not signed on to... can you share a bit more about your experience making the rights-based case for housing in advocacy? Have you ever gotten pushback from policymakers? If so, how would you counter it? Thank you!
