Race and Housing Issue: Tangible Ways to Address Race and Housing in Dallas and Los Angeles
The spring 2021 edition of the ABA Journal of Affordable Housing & Community Development Law focuses on Race and Housing. To continue the important discussions regarding these topics, the Forum Diversity Committee is hosting a series of brown-bag lunches with the authors of the Journal articles to dive deeper into the topics that they wrote about. This first session will be a conversation between Demetria McCain, President of The Inclusive Communities Project in Dallas Texas, and Shashi Hanuman, Directing Attorney of the Public Counsel’s Community Development Project in Los Angeles. These two experienced practitioners will discuss the tangible ways their organizations have been addressing race and housing in these two very different communities, and the successes and failures they have experienced along the way.

The Inclusive Communities Project is a not-for-profit organization that works for the creation and maintenance of thriving racially and economically inclusive communities in the North Texas area, expansion of fair and affordable housing opportunities for low-income families, and redress for policies and practices that perpetuate the harmful effects of discrimination and segregation. The Community Development Project is similarly dedicated to building strong foundations for healthy, vibrant communities by investing comprehensive legal and capacity building services in community based organizations and small businesses, and by using systemic policy, litigation and land use tools to support the development and preservation of affordable and supportive housing in Los Angeles.
