United to House LA: Why Housing Should Be a Human Right!
(SCROLL DOW TO RSVP FOR ZOOM LINK)
Description: Discussion of “United to House LA”ballot measure, which if passed will create the largest investment in affordable housing in the history of the City of Los Angeles. This presentation will cover the background, current status, and potential future impacts of this important local ballot measure – as well as how it relates to the larger goals of ending housing insecurity, advancing a right to housing, and ending criminalization of poverty. There will also be Q & A and several opportunities to take action.
Kath Rogers is a staff attorney on the ACLU SoCal Dignity for All project where she works to advance the rights of unhoused community members through litigation and policy advocacy.
Prior to joining the ACLU, Kath served as Program Manager and Adjunct Professor at the University of Southern California, helping to launch and develop Agents of Change: Civil Rights Advocacy Initiative - a first of its kind undergraduate clinical program. She also served as Executive Director of the National Lawyers Guild Los Angeles where she collaborated with coalition partners and stakeholders to advance policies relating to free speech, housing justice, and labor and immigrant rights.
Kath also maintained a solo legal practice focused on civil rights cases. Her legal work included defending unhoused clients and activists, as well as co-counseling on a federal constitutional class action lawsuit, Arundel v. City of San Diego, challenging criminalization of houselessness, which resulted in a settlement to change discriminatory policing practices.
Kath graduated with High Honors from Thomas Jefferson School of Law in San Diego and received her BA in History with Provost Honors from the University of California San Diego. Prior to her law career, Kath worked as a community organizer for more than a decade on local and state campaigns to advance social justice.
