About This Lesson

This community learning guide was created for the powerful film UNZIPPED: An Autopsy of American Inequality, which explores housing inequity in Venice and shines a light on the housing crisis in the U.S. and the complex realities of homelessness. 

There are five key learning sections in this guide. Each key section includes: a driving question, useful terms (when applicable), personal reflection, discussion questions, extension activities and additional resources. These sections can be used on their own or in conjunction with other sections in the guide.

Key subjects/components addressed include: 1: Barriers to Affordable Housing2: Economic and Social Costs of the Affordable Housing Crisis3: Perceptions and Beliefs About Housing4: The Value of Diverse Communities5: Criminalization of Poverty/Neglect of the Poor

The guide wraps with a #RaiseTheRoof Solutions Blueprint Builder and content-rich Appendices that include Case Studies, Further Context and a Glossary of Useful Terms.
