Mobilize for Affordable Housing
May 17, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm CDT
The inadequacy of affordable housing is a significant contributor to the problem of homelessness. Because affordable housing units are disappearing in Minneapolis and the suburbs, we are partnering with Temple Israel to begin to evaluate how we can make an impact on keeping and growing the number of affordable housing units in the communities we live in.
Toward that end, want to invite you to the Mobilize for Affordable Housing in Your Community program at Adath Jeshurun Congregation on Wednesday, May 17 from 7-9 pm. This educational forum on affordable housing was developed by Adath, JCA (Jewish Community Action), and a number of other groups including Temple Israel.
From 7:00 – 8:00, you will hear keynote presentations by Neeraj Mehta from the Center for Urban and Regional Affairs, Zeynab Egale of HOME line, and Anne Mavity of the St. Louis Park City Council, each of whom will help you understand the situation around affordable housing in the cities you live in.
From 8:00 – 9:00, you will sit at tables with others from the cities you live in, you’ll learn about the specific affordable housing issues in those cities and what action steps you can take to improve the situation.
