ACS Los Angeles: Racial Justice and the Law Part IV: Housing
Join the ACS Los Angeles, Austin, Bay Area, Chicago, DC, and San Diego Lawyer Chapters; the USC and Loyola Law School ACS Student Chapters; and the Mexican American Bar Association for the fourth event in our Racial Justice and the Law series.
This series seeks to uplift the research, scholarship, and work of BIPOC attorneys, advocates, and scholars from across the United States with legal expertise in civil rights, criminal justice, housing, education, the environment, and other areas. The series is intended for lawyers and the general public alike and designed to promote understanding of racial justice issues and systemic racism within the context of the law. We hope that all attendees will leave the event with a solid understanding of key reforms that can address inequities and systemic racism that exist within various areas of the law and the key ways to implement them.
Our fourth event focuses on housing. Housing is a fundamental human right, yet systemic/structural barriers have resulted in disparities among those who possess that right in America. Join us as we discuss the housing crisis gripping America and tools and approaches to break down those barriers and bring housing justice for all.
