A program on March 1, 2001, focusing on Housing issues for 6 CLE credits. Presenters include leaders from national organizations, Minnesota Black Lawyers Organization, legal counsel for Native American tribes, local church leaders and housing community activists, and others. This is a program which relates issues of race and housing and the repression/targeting of low income people who subsist on meager government handouts under increasingly regulated and paternalistic policies. Again, it represents coalition building within the legal community and with activist organizations.
