Housing, Poverty and Race: The Intersection of Three Challenging Issues 
Jason Reece of OSU's Kirwan Institute, and Stephanie Hightower, president and CEO of the Columbus Urban League, will discuss the current housing market and how it impacts people, especially African American women. Past practices ranging from lending policies to freeway development have resulted in racial disparity in housing and housing needs. Hear about recent studies and work to find ways to address these interrelated issues.
