MetroTalks: Rebuilding a Better Bay: Advancing Equitable Housing through COVID-19
Date: Wednesday, June 3, 2020
Time: 10 a.m. – 11 a.m.
The Metro Talks Equity Series is launching in June 2020 to consider how we go about rebuilding a better Bay Area in the wake of the COVID-19 health and economic crisis, lifting up equity as the core value that illuminates our shared goals as we consider how best to restore our region.
Our first forum will look squarely at the housing affordability crisis, which was already a major public policy challenge before the pandemic, bringing in thought leaders from contrasting backgrounds:
- Conor Dougherty: Economics reporter for The New York Times and author of "Golden Gates: Fighting for Housing in America"
- Lorena Melgarejo: Executive Director, Faith in Action
- Steven Falk: Formerly Interim Oakland City Administrator and Lafayette City Manager
- Therese McMillan (moderator): Executive Director, MTC-ABAG
Join us for a 60-minute session, split between a panel discussion and live Q&A with audience members. Register
