The Fight For Fair Housing
Opportunity. Everybody knows that opportunity is the keystone of the American Dream. Yet, neighborhoods are unequal and opportunities vastly differ between East, West, North and South in many cities today. Join us for a candid conversation with Reed N. Colfax ’92 (magna cum laude), Yale University Law School J.D. 1996, about the fight for Fair Housing and how California’s cutting edge state-mandated housing goals attempt to bring us closer to “fairness” in housing.

California is not known for its housing affordability. How can low-cost housing make “moving to opportunity” possible for racial and ethnic minorities to gain a level playing field in the game of life? What are the historical underpinnings of Fair Housing? Why are workers still traveling hours to get to their jobs? How is unequal housing affecting the quality of life of so many Americans? What are the benefits to wealthier neighborhoods of having middle-class neighbors? What do studies show about “mixed” neighborhoods and the benefits derived from coexisting with lower-income residents?
