Join LISC for a live webinar discussion hosted by Denise Scott, President of LISC, exploring how tenants are pushing for solutions to rising rents and evictions, and to address private equity’s role in exacerbating the nation’s housing crisis. This is the second webinar in a series of LISC virtual events focused on community development at this historic crossroads.
Our featured speakers will include Shanika Henderson and Sam Pree-Stinson of Inquilinxs Unidxs, Elora Raymond of the Georgia Institute of Technology, and Heather Vogell of ProPublica. It will be moderated by David M. Greenberg, Vice President of Community Research and Impact at LISC.
Hear how tenants are organizing to save their homes and create more just local and national housing policies, as well as the role of private equity in fueling the housing crisis. The panel will explore the following:
What is the impact of housing speculation and private equity in the single-family and multi-family rental markets?
How do public policies and the actions of the Government-Sponsored Enterprises (GSEs) play into the housing crisis?
How are tenants and community organizations working to build power for a just housing future?
There will be opportunities for audience questions and comments.
