How can we best prepare to fight racial discrimination in housing? Greg Squires has spent his career contributing to public and academic conversations about predatory lending, insurance redlining, and fair housing policy. On October 1, 10AM-noon, we will gather via zoom to take stock of Greg's work and to inspire the next steps in this ongoing battle. Please register here.
Our discussion on October 1 will feature leaders in the field of fair housing and racial segregation:
Lisa Rice is the President and CEO of the National Fair Housing Alliance
Doug Massey is a sociologist who has studied racial segregation in housing for decades
Stefanie DeLuca has spent 15 years studying residential mobility in Chicago
and Richard Rothstein, a Distinguished Fellow of the Economic Policy Institute, wrote the wildly popular Color of Law, which reveals how the government has created racially homogenous neighborhoods
The guest of honor at this event, Gregory D. Squires, has literally written the book(s) on urban racial segregation. His The Fight for Fair Housing (2018, Routledge) brings together activists and scholars, as this event does, to imagine the future of fair housing. We invite the GW community and beyond to participate in a rousing and provocative discussion of where we go from here in the struggle to support vibrant, inclusive communities where the well-being of residents is valued and prioritized.
