Live at Urban – Housing Challenges Facing LGBTQ Communities

Trachtenberg School students are invited to attend Live at Urban – Housing Challenges Facing LGBTQ Communities on Thursday, June 29, from 10:00 – 11:30 a.m. at the Urban Institute 2100 M Street NW, 5th floor. Registration is required to attend this free event.

The legal and policy landscape for LGBTQ people searching for and securing housing continues to change. The Urban Institute has conducted the first multisite, in-person, paired testing study on rental housing discrimination against lesbians, gay men, and transgender people and invites you to a panel discussion where the findings will be presented for the first time. The panel will feature researchers and practitioners who will discuss housing discrimination and other challenges LGBTQ communities face and suggested next steps in policy, research, and advocacy.

  • Harper Jean Tobin, Director of Policy, National Center for Transgender Equality
  • Jim McCarthy, President and CEO, Miami Valley Fair Housing Center Inc.
  • Brittany Walsh, Senior Manager of Patient Retention, Whitman Walker Health
