Hazardous living conditions for NYCHA residents affect not only the quality of life and health for children, but also negatively impact the ability of families to stay together. Join activists, advocates and NYCHA residents to discuss how living in public housing affects child welfare involvement and identify community-driven strategies to promote change. Our guests include:

Moderator: Cindy Bautista-Thomas, Columbia University School of Social Work

Panelists:

  • Ray Lopez, Director of Programs and Director of Environmental Health, Little Sisters of the Assumption

  • Michele Holmes, Housing Activist and NYCHA resident

  • Steven Goodman, Founding Director, Educational Video Center

Presented by the Center for New York City Affairs.
