Housing + Access: Rethinking the Built Environment


Friday, March 6th, 2020
7:30am - 3:30pm CST
How can we reimagine equitable access to quality education, healthy environments, and improved transportation opportunities? Co-Hosts HousingWorks Austin and the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas are pleased to announce our next educational Summit, Housing + Access: Rethinking The Built Environment, that will be yet another opportunity for dialogue, discussion, and action.
Peers and experts from around the country together to showcase how past laws, policies, and land-use planning have influenced the built environment and its relationship to housing, socioeconomic opportunities, and quality of life.
This year, the keynote speaker will be Richard Rothstein, author of The Color of Law: A Forgotten History of How Our Government Segregated America. In his book, he takes readers through the history of how housing policies, land-use planning, and laws were used to segregate America, tracing evidence all the way back to the 19th century.
