Meeting the Moment: Opportunities for Comprehensive Healthy Housing & Health Equity During COVID-19

October 29 10:00 – 11:30 a.m. PDT

ChangeLab Solutions is virtually convening Advancing Healthy & Affordable Housing and Promoting Equity in the COVID-19 Era, a response to the coronavirus pandemic and the resulting economic recession, both of which have adversely affected housing stability and access to healthy, affordable housing. The convening will encompass two sessions.

All are invited to join the first session, Meeting the Moment: Opportunities for Comprehensive Healthy Housing & Health Equity During COVID-19, on Thursday, October 29, at 10 am PDT / 1 pm EDT. We will examine how local governments can respond to the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and structural racism on housing quality, affordability, and stability.
