AREAA 2021 Diversity & Housing Summit
Over 50 years ago, the landmark Fair Housing Act of 1968 was signed into law by President Lyndon B. Johnson, giving fair and equal access to housing and homeownership to millions of minorities. Generations of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders have been able to achieve the American Dream of homeownership and build wealth for their families because of this law.
Throughout their history, AREAA has championed policies that would help AAPIs have greater access to homeownership, increase generational wealth, and build strong, vibrant communities that endure. While great strides have been made over during the 50 years since the passage of the Fair Housing Act, recent events including COVID-19, racial inequity and now hate crimes against Asian Americans drives us to host an event focused on diversity, inclusion and fair housing.
Join this two-day virtual event that will shed light on the cultural and institutional biases that continue to persist in our country. Give yourself the opportunity to build greater empathy and the tools to take action for not only the AAPI community but for all those who need it.
