NHPF Survey Compendium

Interview Theme: Housing as a Human Right Most respondents and interviewees agree that housing is a human right.

However, this framing focuses the conversation on values (which are not necessarily shared and are often viewed as partisan) rather than on how access to safe and stable housing for people who need it will benefit all. While the majority of interviewees expressed that the housing as a human right framing is not one that their organization uses or would consider using, a few interviewees cited the Overton window as a reason to continue to push for this framing: if the conservation keeps shifting to the right, then the public’s view of what the moderate perspective is will also shift to the right; if instead the full range of perspectives are considered, views that are truly moderate will continue to be viewed that way.
