Having worked on this project for a couple of years now I’ve been able to meet with almost fifty organizations and agencies working in around housing and/or immigration in Winnipeg, Providence and Copenhagen. These have ranged from quite local resident organizations, to large national coalitions and everything in between.
As I get deeper and deeper into writing up I’m being reminded of all the interesting work people are doing, often on shoestring budgets, sometimes in hostile climates, and mostly with an enormous amount of creativity and dedication. But I’m also having to come to terms with the fact that I’m just not going to be able to spend all that much time on individual organizations in the dissertation.
So instead I’m going to use this space to present some short profiles of projects and organizations that I found especially interesting, important or just generally rad.
