Housing Insecurity in Delaware

Location: Virtual Event
Unknown, Anywhere
Organization(s): Delaware Coalition to Dismantle New Jim Crow — http://www.endnewjimcrowde.org

Nineteen million households in America, including about 30 percent of all renters pay more than half of their monthly income on housing. This is a key factor in what the government now refers to as “housing insecurity” — a condition in which a person or family’s living situation is tentative, or how close the family might be to homelessness. But what, exactly, does it mean to be “housing insecure?

 Speakers include University of Delaware Professor Dr. Ann Aviles, and Community Legal Aid Society, Inc. Housing Attorney Gilberte Pierre.  The event will conclude with breakout sessions, providing an opportunity to hear from our community and engage volunteers.

Links will be sent to registrants via email several days before the event.
