Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta: Racism and the Economy: Focus on Housing
March 1 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
The Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta invites you to a virtual event on Racism and the Economy: Focus on Housing on Monday, March 1st, from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM.
This event will focus on systemic racism in our housing markets and its impact on economic outcomes for all Americans. Keynote speakers will outline the historical and contemporary context of how racism, racial exclusion, and predatory inclusion have limited housing opportunities and wealth-building for communities of color. Leaders from the public, nonprofit, and academic sectors will then present policy proposals for dismantling the deep inequities in housing market valuation, mortgage lending, and patterns of housing development. These proposals will kick-start a wide-ranging conversation among researchers, policymakers, and community leaders who are committed to eliminating racial disparities in housing opportunity.
