FHJC JOINS LOCAL ACTIVISTS AND CIVIC LEADERS FOR EVENT AT HOFSTRA

On Thursday February 8, Hofstra University will host an evening of actionable conversation with Leah Rothstein, co-author of Just Action: How to Challenge Segregation Under the Color of Law.

2017, Richard Rothstein’s landmark work The Color of Law recounted how government at all levels created segregation. Just Action describes how we can begin to undo it.

Ms. Rothstein will be joined by FHJC Executive Director Elizabeth Grossman and a panel of fair housing activists and Long Island civic leaders, including

  • ERASE Racism President Laura N. Harding, Esq.
  • Housing Help Inc. Executive Director Pilar Moya
  • Huntington Township Housing Coalition Executive Director Hunter Gross
  • Open New York Executive Director Annimaire Gray  

The event will take place Thursday February 8 at Hofstra’s North Campus Mack Student Center Theatre. To register, scan the QR code or visit http://shorturl.at/gqtxY. The first 50 registrants will receive a free signed copy of Just Action.

We hope you will join us for this special event!

The mission of the Fair Housing Justice Center (FHJC), a nonprofit civil rights organization, is to eliminate housing discrimination; promote policies and programs that foster open, accessible, and inclusive communities; and strengthen enforcement of fair housing laws in the New York City region.
