On November 1, 2016, the Orange County Bar Association and Thurgood Marshall Bar Association will present a very important program entitled Fair Housing Laws and Policies: The Historical Seeds of Segregation and How They Continue to Impact Us Today.
This program presents a rare opportunity to hear from the nation’s leading experts on critically important issues that impact us all.
Richard Rothstein has worked as an education policy analyst and written a number of books on the interplay between race and class in education policy. One of his recent works, The Making of Ferguson, received critical coverage by The Washington Post, The New York Times and other publications. He was also featured on NPR’s Fresh Air with Terry Gross.
As I am sure you know, Erwin Chemerinsky is a leading constitutional scholar and the Founding Dean of the University of California, Irvine, School of Law, and needs no introduction.
This program will include a historical review of the causes of segregation, the inequality that persists today as a result of the historical seeds of segregation in residential housing, why and how segregation in residential housing still affects us today in all facets of society and what we can do to address these issues.
