Joe Loonam is the Housing Campaign Coordinator at VOCAL-NY. He grew up in Bay Ridge Brooklyn, and in an attempt to stay out of trouble, volunteered with VOCAL-NY as a teenager. Since then he earned a BA from Hampshire College concentrating in the history of social movements in the United States. After graduating he worked with the Riders Alliance through the Center For Neighbor Leadership Apprenticeship Program. He went on to work at the Urban Homesteading Assistance Board doing tenant organizing in Crown Heights. He is very excited to be back working at VOCAL-NY.
