Princeton Public Library Hosts Housing Justice Forum

(PRINCETON, NJ) -- The housing crisis in America will be addressed by panels of experts on Saturday, December 10 during a Housing Justice Forum in the Community Room of Princeton Public Library. The forum may also be attended virtually via Zoom.

The event features panel discussions at 11:00am & 1:00pm and an opportunity at 2:00pm to connect with people who are working locally on housing and related efforts. Lunch will be provided at noon for in-person attendees.

The 11:00am discussion, “How Did We Get Here?” will provide national and regional context for the housing crisis. Panelists include Jacob William Faber, associate professor of sociology and public service at New York University; Ellora Derenoncourt, assistant professor of economics, Princeton University; and Douglas Massey, Princeton School of Public and International Affairs. Thomas J. Sugrue, professor of social and cultural analysis and history, New York University, will serve as moderator.

Following lunch, the discussion, “What Can We Do?” will take place. This panel highlights potential solutions and their interplaying factors – especially in the Princeton area. Panelists include Sara Bronin, professor of planning and law, Cornell University; Jean Pierre Brutus, senior counsel, Economic Justice Program, N.J. Institute for Social Justice; and Peter Kasabach, executive director of N.J. Future. Matt Mleczko, Princeton University doctoral candidate in population studies and social policy, will serve as moderator.

In-person attendees can make local connections at the 2:00pm Action Fair, and all attendees will have access to a resource guide listing local organizations and initiatives.
