Global network for the right to habitat and social justice 
Celebrating 45 years of HIC
HIC turned 45 this year! That is close to half a century in which this global Coalition has been moving, challenging, shaping and influencing social justice issues and human rights related to habitat. 

Throughout 2022, we invite you, Members, Friends and Allies of HIC, to join us in looking back and looking ahead by celebrating the successes of HIC in the four main areas of our work, defending and promoting housing and land rights, the social production of habitat, gender equality and environmental justice. 

This is just the beginning, we continue to imagine and build the future we want. Thank you for joining us.
