Meeting the Moment: Racial Equity in MA Housing Policy

April 26 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Friday, April 26th, 2024

10am

Duration:

1 hour

Location:

Online

Description:

Join us on 4/26 at 10:00am on Zoom for a conversation on racial equity and housing with Attorney Mark Martinez of Massachusetts Law Reform Institute and Executive Director Sarah Byrnes of Massachusetts Union of Public Housing Tenants. We are keeping the focus on the housing crisis, as racism is deeply embedded in housing policy.

At this event, learn from experts about the Housing Bond Bill, the largest proposed investment in housing in Massachusetts history. We will work to build an understanding of the bill’s strengths, ways it can change for the better, and areas it will not go far enough towards repair. We will conclude by reflecting on Mel King’s legacy as a model for putting knowledge of oppressive systems into legislative action.
