In 2019, Avi Lewis produced a series of videos for The Leap covering the core elements of a Green New Deal.

The legacies of colonialism, segregation, redlining and predatory lending have all contributed to abhorrent housing conditions for Black and Indigenous communities.

Home ownership is becoming more and more of a distant dream for working people. Public housing is deteriorating. For far too many, homelessness can be one missed paycheck away. And that’s just part of the story: our planetary home is in trouble too.

A Green New Deal for Housing can keep us safe, and slash inequality and climate pollution at the same time.
