Housing Symposium: HUD's Past, Present and Future


November 11, 2017

9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.

Atrium, Detroit Mercy Law, Riverfront Campus

To commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Detroit riot/rebellion in 1967, Detroit Mercy Law will host a housing symposium over a three-day period, entitled HUD's Past, Present and Future. The symposium will bring together the public, scholars and community experts to evaluate the impact of HUD (U.S. Dept. of Housing and Urban Development) and propose expansions or alternatives to make HUD more effective in the future.

The symposium kicks off on Saturday, Nov. 11 with a series of practical housing workshops for the public (including emancipated minors, tenants, first-time homebuyers, the homeless, seniors and veterans). The session is free and open to the public, and takes place in the Atrium at Detroit Mercy Law between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. Learn more and register on Eventbrite.

An academic session will follow on Monday and Tuesday, Nov. 13-14. Community organizers, clergy, economists, HUD/MSHDA officials, legal scholars, housing practitioners, public officials and sociologists will gather in the Atrium at Detroit Mercy Law between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. on both days. This two-day session will culminate in a panel discussion commemorating the 1967 Detroit riot/rebellion and focus exclusively on Michigan and how HUD's programs have impacted the region generally, and Detroit in particular.
