ONLINE PANEL―Housing Justice: From Trump to Biden
January 29, 2021 @ 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm
ONLINE―”Housing Justice: From Trump to Biden”: The coming of a new Administration in Washington creates the potential for innovation and bold leadership throughout the Federal government. This is especially true for departments and programs that are usually considered low-profile backwaters of the bureaucracy but which could have a tangible impact on the most urgent issues of social inequity, such as the shortage of affordable housing, barriers to homeownership, the economic consequences of high housing costs on household income and asset building, and homelessness. Friday, January 29th @ 1:00pm PST via Zoom: Join Zoom Meeting: https://cpp.zoom.us/j/82535297665 Meeting ID: 825 3529 7665 With the transition from the Trump to the Biden Administration, the role and efficacy of the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) as well as federal housing legislation will be crucial in addressing the social inequities that result from California’s shortage of affordable housing. Panelists will discuss what Congress and HUD have (and have not) accomplished under the Trump Administration, how this has impacted the housing insecure in Southern California, and what housing policies we can expect under, and should demand from, the Biden Administration. Join the California Center for Ethics and Policy at Cal Poly Pomona for a panel discussion on housing justice under the Trump and Biden administrations. This project is supported by California Humanities through a Humanities for All Project Grant.
