Expanding Housing Options for the Formerly Incarcerated Webinar

Posted August 28, 2019
Community Matters webinar

The Annie E. Casey Foun­da­tion recent­ly host­ed a webi­nar explor­ing how advo­cates, com­mu­ni­ty groups and oth­ers can work to increase hous­ing options for peo­ple with crim­i­nal and arrest records.

The event fea­tured Chloe Noo­nan and Son­ja Ton­nesen from Root & Rebound, a cen­ter in Cal­i­for­nia that advo­cates for peo­ple with crim­i­nal backgrounds.

The speak­ers explored:

  • hous­ing rights of peo­ple with arrest and con­vic­tion histories;
  • legal avenues avail­able for chal­leng­ing unlaw­ful hous­ing dis­crim­i­na­tion; and
  • strate­gies advo­cates are imple­ment­ing to remove hous­ing bar­ri­ers for those with crim­i­nal records.

This webi­nar ses­sion is part of the Casey Foundation’s Com­mu­ni­ty Mat­ters webi­nar series, which delves into com­plex issues relat­ed to com­mu­ni­ty change and lessons that Casey and oth­er orga­ni­za­tions have learned from their work in neigh­bor­hoods nationwide.
