Shipman & Goodwin LLP is pleased to sponsor this CLE-eligible panel discussion on identifying and overcoming racial and economic stereotypes in housing. Our panelists each deal with aspects of this challenging topic regularly in their work.  Our discussion will focus on housing as an example, but will attempt to identify the deeper roots and manifestations of prejudice, exclusion, inequality, and segregation. Topics will include:

  • Where do racial and economic prejudice exist in housing in Connecticut today?
  • How racially and economically segregated is Connecticut, and why?
  • How do racial and economic segregation in housing impact families?
  • How do state laws and regulations and government programs involving land use, financing, construction, and occupancy directly or indirectly perpetuate segregation in housing?
  • What legislative and policy changes, litigation, or other efforts have the potential to promote greater integration in housing?
