May 5th @ 12PM EST

The spring 2021 edition of the ABA Journal of Affordable Housing & Community Development Law focuses on Race and Housing. To continue the important discussions regarding these topics, the Forum Diversity Committee is hosting a series of brown-bag lunches with the authors of the Journal articles to dive deeper into the topics that they wrote about. This first session will be a conversation between Demetria McCain, President of The Inclusive Communities Project in Dallas Texas, and Shashi Hanuman, Directing Attorney of the Public Counsel’s Community Development Project in Los Angeles.
