Conference on Race, Class, Gender, & Ethnicity: “There’s no Place like Home: Housing in Crisis”

February 24, 2018 @ 9:00 am

The 2018 Conference on Race, Class, Gender, & Ethnicity – run entirely by UNC law students – will examine both the positive advances and the stalled progress in law and policy to address the crucial housing issues faced by so many. Focusing on North Carolina, the Conference invites practitioners, academics, advocates, and local community members to consider how the law has both supported and failed those seeing shelter and stable, affording housing, and what steps can be taken to ensure that housing is guaranteed as a human right for individuals and families.

This year’s Keynote Speaker is Mr. Vann R. Newkirk II, staff writer at The Atlantic, where he covers politics and policy with a focus on voting rights, civil rights, and health policy.

Other speakers include:

Courtney Morton, Housing and Homelessness Research Coordinator for Mecklenburg County Community Support Services.
Satana Deberry, Executive Director of the North Carolina Housing Coalition.
Christopher Taylor, Deputy Regional Administrator for the US Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) Region IV.
