DESCRIPTION

Please join the Northwestern Michigan College Social Work Program and the Northwest Michigan Coalition to End Homelessnes for a special film screening of Owned: A Tale of Two Americas. This film explores the racist roots of American housing policy and details the choices that led to widespread commoditization of housing and the economic collapse of 2008.

The film will be followed by a community-driven discussion about housing insecurity and homelessness in our region, moderated by Ryan Hannon, Street Outreach Coordinator at Goodwill Northern Michigan and featuring:

  • Tina Allen, Coordinator at Northwest Michigan Coalition to End Homelessness
  • Sakura Takano, Director of Housing at Goodwill Northern Michigan
  • Wendy Irvin, Executive Director, Habitat for Humanity-Grand Traverse Region
  • Karen Emerson, Financial Management Services Manager at Northwest Michigan Community Action Agency
  • Joe Kaubenaw, Grand Traverse Band of Ottawa and Chippewa Indians

This event is co-sponsored by the Community Economic Development Association of Michigan (CEDAM) and the Michigan Coalition Against Homelessness for the national campaign, Our Homes Our Voices, and their annual National Week of Action.
