NLIHC is co-sponsoring a new webinar series, “Legal Levers for Health Equity in Housing,” in partnership with the National Center for Healthy Housing and the Center for Public Health Law Research at the Temple University Beasley School of Law. Inspired by a recent series of reports, this webinar series explores the goal of health equity in housing through the lens of laws, policies, and other legal mechanisms to understand how those “levers” can establish safe, affordable housing in diverse neighborhoods.
In the first of a three-part series, "Creating Equitable, Diverse Neighborhoods and Communities," presenters from Temple University, Oak Park Regional Housing Center, and the Inclusive Communities Project define the concept of health equity in housing and examine strategies to achieve this goal. Attendees were also encouraged to join the Opportunity Starts at Home multisector affordable homes campaign.
A recording of the first part is now available to view on YouTube. The second and third parts are forthcoming, with dates to be determined.
