Speaker: Christie Marra, Director of Advocates for Credit, Employment and Shelter (ACES), Virginia Poverty Law Center
Location: Tyler Haynes Commons, Room 305
The Bonner Center for Civic Engagement (CCE) hosts weekly Brown Bag discussions, open to members of the campus and the community, from 12:30–1:25p.m. on most Fridays during the academic year. Each week, a speaker or small panel leads a presentation on a provocative social issue, then opens up the floor for discussion. Free pizza will be provided.
This Brown Bag will discuss the Virginia Poverty Law Center's campaign to end evictions, their work on the rights of renters, low-income homeowners, and addressing issues around housing access, and the eviction epidemic facing Virginia, more specifically Richmond today.
