LaFHAC is pleased to announce that registration is now open for our 15th annual Fit for a King Fair Housing Summit! The theme this year is “Meeting the Moment: Fair Housing in a Time of Crisis and Possibility”. The summit will be held virtually via Zoom on Friday, January 28, 2022 from 9am-12:30pm. Please note that the summit will just be one day this year.
Fit for a King 2022 will feature a keynote address by Sheryll Cashin, author of White Space, Black ‘Hood: Opportunity Hoarding and Segregation in the Age of Inequality and Carmack Waterhouse Professor of Law, Civil Rights and Social Justice at Georgetown University. Read more about Professor Cashin here.
We’ll also have fantastic panels of housing justice advocates and community leaders discussing connections between housing discrimination, segregation, NIMBYism, the criminal legal system, LGBTQ+ oppression, COVID-19, and the eviction crisis, as well as how communities are fighting back. You’ll come away with concrete ways you can take action to advance housing justice in 2022.
