Pace Law School and Westchester Residential Opportunities, Inc. will present a symposium on fair and affordable housing in the lower Hudson Valley on Oct. 21 at Pace Law School. The program is intended for attorneys, law students, policymakers, housing professionals, business leaders and the general public. It will seek to foster a productive and positive discussion, focused on moving forward and improving housing opportunities for all residents in the region.
U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) assistant secretary John D. Trasviña will give the keynote address. Two panel discussions will follow. The first will examine the benefits of diverse and inclusive communities and how to overcome existing legal and social obstacles to true integration. The second will focus on the federal lawsuit settlement in which Westchester County promised to create 750 affordable housing units in 31 predominantly white communities over a 7-year period, and its implications.
The symposium will take place from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Judicial Institute, Pace Law School, 83 North Broadway, White Plains, N.Y. To register and inquire about CLE (continuing legal education) credit, contact Linda Maccarrone at Pace Law School, 914-422-4062.
