Come hear three leaders with decades of research, analysis, and organizing discuss the deep roots and potential solutions of this crisis transforming the Bay Area.

Maria Poblet, executive director of Causa Justa/Just Cause, a community organizing fighting for housing rights for people of color, immigrants, women, and all oppressed and exploited people.
john a. powell, author of Racing to Justice: Transforming Our Conceptions of Self and Other to Build an Inclusive Society and director of the UC Berkeley Haas Institute for a Fair and Inclusive Society
Dick Walker, Professor of Economic Geography, UC Berkeley
