Join us for an important virtual discussion on housing and racial equity on November 6!
The COVID-19 pandemic has created dire public impact and economic challenges for vulnerable communities of color across the country. People of color are experiencing higher COVID-19 infection and mortality rates and are disproportionately impacted by job loss, wage reductions, and business closures, all of which negatively impact access to safe and affordable housing. Without intervention, the crisis will undoubtedly worsen. How can we house more people and close racial disparities in housing?
Join the leader of one of the leading international nonprofit housing organizations as he highlights how Habitat is responding to COVID-19, its growing work in Seattle, and discusses with other civic leaders the wide-ranging impact of COVID-19 on housing around the world. The group will also discuss the role of housing policies in causing our nation’s racial disparities and how housing is central to both health solutions and racial equity. Come ready to learn and inspired to act.
