This month, we are pleased to feature Fred Freiberg, Executive Director of the Fair Housing Justice Center in our Thought Leader Speaker Series to present “From Apartheid to Living Apart: A Presentation on the History of Residential Racial Segregation and Fair Housing Laws.”

Please join us for this important discussion moderated by NYC Council Member Ritchie Torres to explore the interplay of the private real estate sector and government in providing the legal foundation, institutional tools, and financial incentives that created a “dual housing market” and rigid patterns of residential racial segregation in our metropolitan regions. The presentation will also examine how discriminatory housing policies and practices continue to perpetuate segregated living patterns despite the passage of local, state, and federal fair housing laws.
