Event Description

Interested in learning how to make a real difference?

Join Christian Community Action for a free event featuring Matthew Desmond, author of the award-winning EVICTED: POVERTY AND PROFIT IN THE AMERICAN CITY, and Juan Salgado, president and CEO of Instituto del Progreso Latino, on April 25 at 5:30 PM.

CCA is excited to host this candid conversation about housing, homelessness, and the pathway to family stability at Hill Regional Career High School, 140 Legion Avenue, New Haven.

This event is free and open to the public.

Matthew Desmond is the John L. Loeb Associate Professor of the Social Sciences and co-director of the Justice and Poverty Project at Harvard University. EVICTED: POVERTY AND PROFIT IN THE AMERICAN CITY is a New York Times best seller, nonfiction finalist for the National Book Critics Circle award, and winner of the PEN America/John Kenneth Galbraith Award for Nonfiction. Learn more about EVICTED here: http://www.evictedbook.com/

 
Through the Instituto del Progreso Latino, which he has led since 2001, Juan Salgado works with members of the low-income, Latino immigrant communities on Chicago’s southwest side. Most adults in these communities face formidable barriers to upward mobility. Instituto del Progreso Latino is a recognized leader in education, workforce, and citizenship, serving 10,000 people annually.


Beverly Gage, Yale Professor of History, will moderate. Professor Gage is a regular contributor to The New York Times, Washington Post, and PBS News Hour.

This discussion will raise awareness of issues affecting urban centers across Connecticut, a state where the cost of living is high, quality housing stock is limited, and even families whose heads of household are employed are at risk of homelessness.

Join us. Share this event with two other people who care about social justice in New Haven.

An Accurate Census Count is Imperative for America. Here’s Why.

Matt Josephs, LISC SVP and head of the organization’s policy team, makes the urgent case for why a fair and accurate census count is so important for the health and wellbeing of our communities.
