2/27 - Keeping People in Place: Strategies to Support Renters at Risk of Displacement

Updated: Jan 3, 2020

As centers of innovation and culture, many cities are enjoying strong growth in their economies and their populations. But not everyone benefits from this vitality: with growth comes the threat of gentrification in hot markets for housing and real estate. This webinar will focus on just cause eviction controls and legal assistance to prevent eviction, two strong policy solutions that local leaders can leverage to protect long-term residents, especially people of color and low-income communities, from being displaced as their cities and neighborhoods flourish.

Featured Speakers:

-- Councilwoman Helen Gym, Philadelphia, PA

-- Darnell Johnson, Right to the City Boston

-- Michael Johnson, JP Morgan Chase

-- James Crowder, PolicyLink (moderator)

DATE: Tue, Feb 27, 2018

TIME: 12:00 PM - 12:45 PM CST
