How should we define affordability when discussing housing in New York City?
To explore issues around equitable access, Brooklyn Historical Society is gathering housing rights activists for an evening of conversation. Providing their expertise will be Aaron Carr of Housing Rights Initiative, Shatia Strother from Families United for Racial and Economic Equality (FUREE) and Raquel Vazquez, the Director of Housing Development at Joy Construction. Facilitating the conversation will be journalist Jimmy Tobias.
The conversation takes place at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, December 4 at BHS, located at 128 Pierrepont Street in Brooklyn Heights. Tickets are $10 for general admission and $5 for members. For more information or to reserve your tickets visit the event page.
