The Metropolitan Policy Program at Brookings Institution will host a forum titled “Pathways to Opportunity: Housing, Transportation, and Social Mobility.” The forum will include discussion of HUD’s Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing (AFFH) rule released in 2015.
Brookings Vice President and Director of the Metropolitan Policy Program Amy Liu will moderate a conversation between U.S. Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julián Castro and U.S. Department of Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx. The conversation will be followed by responses from a panel of experts from metropolitan areas across the country who will discuss local impacts.
The event will take place on Tuesday, February 23 at 2 pm ET at Brookings’ Falk Auditorium, 1775 Massachusetts Avenue NW, Washington, DC, and will also be available via live webcast.
