A Downpayment on the Divide: Steps to Ease Racial Inequality in Homeownership
Wednesday, April 12, 2017 | 2:00 - 4:00 pm EDT | CFED Headquarters
The United States has a significant and growing racial wealth divide, and one of the largest drivers of the divide is homeownership. Decades of discriminatory practices in the housing market and racist policies at all levels of government created racial disparities in homeownership rates and outcomes. A recently released report from CFED explores these barriers to equal housing opportunity and proposes a number of policy recommendations to reduce racial inequality in homeownership.
On Wednesday, April 12, join CFED, the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, Capital Area Asset Builders, the Urban Institute and other experts for a discussion on the intersection of homeownership and the racial wealth divide. After introductory remarks and a discussion of the report, a panel discussion will take place, followed by a Q&A session. There will be a networking opportunity after the conclusion of the event.
