Last week, I reported on Picture the Homeless’ ongoing campaign against JPMorgan Chase. The homeless-led organization is pressuring Chase bank to utilize the vacant property they own around the city to create affordable, low-income housing. Picture the Homeless members rallied outside JPMorgan Chase’s headquarters Dec. 3 and delivered a letter to an investment officer demanding a meeting with Chase regarding housing activists’ demands for a Homeless People’s Trust Fund and a Community Land Trust to create affordable housing.
Now, the folks at Housing is a Human Right, a multimedia project created by Michael Premo and Rachel Falcone on the struggle for housing justice in New York City, have produced a slideshow on the protest and the campaign. Check it out below, and click here for a review by the Indypendent’s Irina Ivanova of Housing is a Human Right’s audiovisual exhibit in a laundromat in Brooklyn.
