HAND’s June 12 Annual Meeting & Housing Expo to Focus on Housing Discrimination and Segregation

The Housing Association of Nonprofit Developers (HAND) will hold its 27th Annual Meeting & Housing Expo on June 12 at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington, DC. This event is the largest convening of real estate and community development professionals in the Washington region, bringing together more than 1,400 practitioners each year. The theme of this year’s meeting and expo is: “Deconstruct Our Past, Redesign Our Future.”

This year’s HAND convening will feature “Undesign the Redline,” an interactive exhibit that provides a timeline of discrimination, segregation and housing policy in the U.S., connecting the intentional and systematic racial housing segregation of the 1930s to political and social issues of today through the narratives of the people and communities affected by redlining and its legacy. The conference will explore this history, as well as new and equitable policies and practices moving forward. April De Simone, co-founding partner of Undesign the Redline, is a keynote speaker.
