Actions inspired by our past Housing and Equity Townhall.

Once we understand that segregation didn’t happen naturally or by accident, it is a small step to realize that equally purposeful action can fix it.” 

Richard and Leah Rothstein, in Just Action

Thank you for attending our Housing & Equity Townhall. Click here to let us know what you thought of the event. We hope it offered enlightenment about the underpinnings of housing segregation, and a road map for the way forward toward a more equitable future. Most importantly, we hope you’ll see it as an invitation to engage. Conversation is only the beginning. We cannot be spectators to housing justice; meaningful action is the path to a world where everyone has a decent place to live.
