Ending Homelessness and Promoting Racial Equity Through the Human Right to Housing: What’s Happening On the Hill

 

Date: Monday, November 15, 2021

Time: 12:30 p.m. – 2:00 p.m. ET

Format: Free non-CLE Webinar

Sponsor: ABA Section of Civil Rights and Social Justice

 

DESCRIPTION:

With a COVID-19-induced eviction crisis still impacting millions of renters, unsheltered homelessness at levels not seen since the Great Depression, and all of this disparately impacting Black, Indigenous, and other people of color, there is lots of action happening at the federal level to address housing and homelessness issues. This webinar will offer an inside view into current legislative efforts and share voices with lived expertise to ground the discussion in real-world experience. Webinar attendees will learn about background information on the housing and homelessness crises in America, the disparate racial impact of this crisis and the need for policy tailored to that impact, efforts to increase housing and homeless funding through the budget and infrastructure packages, and other key bills to implement the human right to housing and create housing justice in America. Come and learn about recent efforts and the role you as a lawyer can play in ending homelessness. 

Speakers:

  • Representative Cori Bush – U.S. Representative for Missouri’s 1st District
  • Paul Boden – Executive Director, Western Regional Advocacy Project
  • Sarah Saadian – Vice President of Public Policy, National Low Income Housing Coalition

 

Moderator:

  • Eric Tars – Legal Director, National Homelessness Law Center
