"Why We Need Tiny House Villages: Building Sustainable Communities for the Houseless," presented by Ibrahim Mubarak, executive director of Right 2 Survive.

Ibrahim has been a renowned leader in Portland's activist community for over 25 years. As a champion for Houseless Rights, he has dedicated himself to improving the many struggles of the disenfranchised and houseless community.

Ibrahim cofounded Dignity Village, a tiny house village for the houseless in the late 1990s and in 2010, on World Houseless Awareness Day, he cofounded, along with other members of Right 2 Survive, a rest area called Right 2 Dream.

In 2009, Ibrahim founded Right 2 Survive, a group made up of houseless, formerly houseless people and their allies and supporters, to educate the houseless about the unjust laws established to criminalize the houseless communities for exercising their civil, constitutional and human rights.

In addition, Ibrahim is currently a cochair on Jobs With Justice and chair of WRAP

Sponsored by the JD Lewis Teaching & Research Fund and SLAC
