Interview with Alana Greer
From - UM Libraries on August 10th, 2020
This interview is with Alana Greer, co-founder of the Community Justice Project. This organization gathers a group of lawyers that work with community organizers and grassroots groups to help low-income communities of color, since the program believes in social rights and democracy. This program aims to help tenants and minorities to have voice, and decide about their community future and housing. This group of lawyers strive to undo social injustice in South Florida. This project also knows that the community is impacted by several factors, such as gentrification, weather, hurricanes, sea level rise and the COVID-19 disease, that exacerbate inequalities, particularly in Miami, Florida. According to Alana Greer, housing is a human right and everybody should have a roof; she thinks that we need to have a legal system that understands housing rights.
