Event description
A panel discussion on affordable housing in DC and how a New Social Compact might address local housing conditions.

About this event

A health crisis. The threat of more mass evictions. A constantly insufficient housing supply. A high-cost housing market, riven with inequalities, that gets less affordable with each passing year. The challenges of DC’s housing market have been exposed even more by the COVID-19 pandemic. But a new inclusionary zoning plan and increased funding for the Housing Production Trust Fund may hold hope for a movement toward a better outcome. How would a New Social Compact address this?

Join the Kalmanovitz Initiative and the Georgetown Global Cities Initiative for a panel discussion on affordable housing in DC and how a New Social Compact might address local housing conditions. The panel discussion will be held on Wednesday, September 22, 2021 from 1:00 to 2:30 pm via Zoom.

The panel is the first in a series addressing housing issues from the local to the international level as part of KI’s New Social Compact project.

Panelists:

Brian McCabe, associate professor of Sociology, Georgetown University

Dyana Forester, president, Metropolitan Washington AFL-CIO

Miles Holloman, longtime DC tenant advocate

Andrew Trueblood, director, DC Office of Planning
