Session I

Plenary – VOTING RIGHTS, Race and Housing Civil Rights – The Civil Rights Act of 1866 set an historical pathway for achieving property rights for newly-freed African American slaves. In a post-election environment, the question becomes…Can we make the fair housing case to identify the disruptive link between gerrymandering, voter suppression techniques and housing civil rights violations based on race/other group identities?
