Over the past 25 years, the equity movement has embraced the importance of place, and the vital role it plays in determining health, opportunity, and economic success. Housing is a necessity that is critical to creating place and opportunity.  But is it a right?  How can we harness the lessons gained from housing policies to deepen our understanding and propel this work forward?
