One of the main catalysts for the recent spate of service delivery protests in Eldorado Park is of course the slow pace of the provision of access to housing.

The Studies in Poverty and Inequality Institute (SPII) in association with the Foundation for Human Rights and the Nelson Mandela Foundation is hosting a series of public dialogues and on Sunday 2 July at 14H00 they will be hosting one in Eldorado Park with a special focus on the Right to Housing.

All residents, scholars, pensioners, stakeholders, churches, teachers, community leaders, and school principals are invited to become part of a national discussion to assess what ordinary South Africans believe that each person living in this country should be entitled to as a decent standard of living.

The national discussion has as a central theme; "A Life Beyond Poverty", and aims at looking at issues like Education, transport, Access to information and even Access to Food, but the main focus for the upcoming dialogue on 2 July will be the Right to Housing.

The organisations named above hosting these dialogues act as lobbyists who in many cases influence government policy directions thus your input at such public dialogues make a valuable contribution in advancing social security policies.

SPII Acting Advocacy Officer Zenaida Martin was recently on EldosFM to address community concerns in advance of the Community Dialogue about Housing in Eldorado Park this Sunday.

Details of the event are regularly broadcast throughout this week on EldosFM for which you can tune in on 87.6FM or visit the EldosFM Website for Live Streaming.

The Our Rights: Public Dialogue Series - Right to Housing event takes place on Sunday 2 July 2017 from 14H00 to 16H30 at the Albertus Pop centre.

The Albertus Pop Centre is situated at Cnr Turf & Goud Streets Eldorado Park, Johannesburg.
