Upcoming APA Webinar on Fair Housing Law

The American Planning Association (APA) Planning & Law Division is presenting a webinar on February 25, 2021 on fair housing. Information about the topic, speakers, and registration is below:

Fair Housing Law Under the Biden Administration

APA Planning & Law Division 

Thursday, February 25, 2021 

noon - 1:30 p.m. CST 

The Biden Administration has signaled its intent to make major reforms to fair housing law, modifying or reversing many of the changes to regulation enacted in the prior four years. This webinar will forecast how the Biden Administration will approach these issues, including the potential reinstatement of the Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing Rule and the modification of the disparate impact standard under the Act. Panelists will provide perspective on how these changes will affect planners and land use lawyers alike, and reflect on the various policy and legal considerations at stake.

Featured panelists include Anika Singh Lemar, a Professor at Yale Law School specializing in land use and residential segregation; Daniel Lauber, a land use attorney and planner with over 40 years of experience working on fair housing issues; and Zachary Best, a civil rights attorney currently litigating a challenge to fair housing regulations instituted in 2020.
