On Tuesday September 17, 2019 at 6:30pm, CMHA Toronto and Hot Docs Cinema are partnering to hold a special screening of the film PUSH – a film about the global housing market and how, across the world, people are being “pushed” out of their homes.
Housing is a fundamental human right, and a precondition to both mental and physical well-being. But in cities all around the world, having a place to live is becoming more and more difficult. To push the conversation, join CMHA Toronto and Hot Docs Cinema for a screening of Fredrik Gertten’s acclaimed exposé of the global housing crisis, followed by a lively panel discussion on the connections between mental health and housing access.
We are happy to have Wellesley Institute CEO, Kwame McKenzie moderating the panel, along with CMHA Toronto Executive Director, Steve Lurie, TAEH Executive Lead, Kira Heineck, and Person with Lived Experience of Housing and Homelessness, Barbara Berryman, who will discuss the City of Toronto’s current roles and responsibilities in shaping our housing environment, and share recommendations on how we can build an inclusive and rights-based housing framework in our city.
