Wednesday Morning Plenary
Starting our day on Wednesday, we welcome filmmaker, Sara Terry, who will share her film, The Carlyle Group vs The American Dream. Sara will talk with us about the film and what happens to residents once private equity becomes the landlord.
For the closing plenary we are thrilled to welcome Dr. Megan Sandel for a keynote talk about how stable, decent, affordable homes are a foundation of health for children, families, and communities. Dr. Sandel is the Co-Director of the GROW clinic at Boston Medical Center and is a nationally recognized expert on housing and child health.
