Event description

Description

The Cardozo Law Review, the Floersheimer Center for Constitutional Democracy, and the Cardozo Public Service Scholars Program, present a Symposium entitled, The Fair Housing Act After 50 Years.


The Symposium will bring together leading academics and practitioners and will serve as an opportunity to reflect on the origins of the Fair Housing Act, discuss the intersections between housing and other areas of civil society, and engage in forward thinking about the future of the Act. Julian Castro, former Housing and Urban Development Secretary under President Barack Obama, will deliver the Keynote Presentation.


The event will be all day, with panels focused on:

  • The origins and history of the Fair Housing Act

  • The intersections between housing and educational opportunity

  • The current state of Fair Housing Act enforcement, and how housing equality is litigated on the federal, state, and local levels

  • The future of the Fair Housing Act
