In October 2016, the City Council voted on legalizing whole home and commercial short term rentals like AirBnB. Come to this teach-in to learn more about what’s legal & what’s not, get updated information about the number and type of Airbnb’s in your neighborhood, & how converting residential housing into tourist lodging fits into the broader picture of gentrification, the wider racial and economic justice issues of affordable housing & tenants’ rights in New Orleans—& what we can do to prevent our city’s housing crisis from getting worse. Brought to you by Jane Place Neighborhood Sustainability Initiative.
