Community Conversation: What is a Progressive Housing Position? | First Baptist Church | Monday, 29. April 2019


Join JP Progressives for a community conversation with housing and policy experts on What is a Progressive Housing Policy


The City of Boston is rapidly becoming more unequal and segregated than at any time in its recent history. Boston is one of the least affordable major housing markets in the world, and Massachusetts is one of the most unequal states in the country. Our community in Jamaica Plain is at the forefront of this crisis. In JPP’s first community conversation dedicated to housing we will bring together policymakers, local activists, and housing researchers to address some of the basic problems in housing policy and discuss possible solutions. We hope that this conversation will be one of many that are dedicated to better defining: "what is a progressive housing policy?

Panelists:


Lydia Edwards
Nathalie Janson
Lisa Owens
Barry Bluestone



Moderated by: qainat khan, WBUR/GroundTruth Journalist who has reported extensively on housing in Boston
