Community Dinner and Roundtable: Voices from Public Housing in Baltimore City

12 Apr

Monday April 21, 6:00PM @ Red Emma’s

Join us for a special evening event: as Baltimore moves to privatize 40% of its remaining public housing, with public officials united in their claim that there is no other way to “save” affordable housing than through the complicated federal RAD program, the voices of those most affected by the sweeping changes—the residents and workers—seem to be the voices least present in the conversation.

At this special pay-what-you-can community dinner, we’ll be joined by a panel of public housing residents, as well as union workers whose jobs stand to be eliminated and restructured under the RAD plan.  Moderated by Marc Steiner, we hope the event, by foregrounding the voices of those directly threatened by the uncertainties introduced by this wave of privatization, can help us all better understand what’s at stake in this situation.

Dinner at 6PM, Panel at 7PM
