Untangling the Affordable Housing Crisis
New York, NY | Brown University Alumni in Real Estate
6:00 – 8:30 pm, National Opera Center, Scorca Hall, 330 7th Avenue
manhattan Mayor Bill de Blasio's controversial mandate to build 200,000 affordable units in ten years marks another chapter in New York's long and complicated affordable housing history. More importantly, it calls into the question the future of affordable housing and the feasibility of such an ambitious plan. Headlines have been quick to mention the lack of tax incentives for developers, escalating land and labor costs, as well as reported cases of discriminatory tenant practices at lucrative 80/20 buildings and other roadblocks to the plan. Yet, very little has been done to shed light on the looming affordable housing crisis. Please join the Brown University Alumni in Real Estate Group (BREG) for a thought-provoking panel discussion with leading experts in affordable housing. The panel consists of government officials, economists, community activists, developers, and more. Learn more about the affordable housing crisis and its far reaching impact. Our program will begin with a one-hour cocktail reception and will be followed by the discussion with our distinguished panelists. Our panelists will include: City Councilman Stephen Levin ’03, Economist and Furman Center Research Fellow Michael Suher ’14, former CEO of the National Housing Project Maureen Friar ’82, Executive Deputy Commissioner and COO of NYS HCR Betsy Mallow ’02, Deputy Executive Director for Strategic Planning at NYC Department of City Planning Howard Slatkin ’95, and Brown Trustee and Director of Business Development at Genesis Companies Brian Benjamin ’98.

The Politics of Reproduction
Corona del Mar, CA | Brown Club of Orange County
6:30 – 8:30 pm, Oasis Senior Center, 801 Narcissus Ave
Our daily news is replete with examples of the disruptive influence of transnational migration. Here in Southern California, we’ve been impacted by Central American children escaping social chaos at home for a better life in the U.S. At the same time, some of us also welcome home children who have been adopted internationally. Why are children from other countries treated differently depending on how or why they have arrived here? Jessaca Leinaweaver is Associate Professor of Anthropology at Brown University, where she is affiliated with the Population Studies and Training Center and the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies. Her work delves into the politics of reproduction - illustrated by child care, adoption, new reproductive technologies, and family separation - based on her comparative research into Latin American and Spanish cultures. Join Dr. Leinaweaver and BCOC for a provocative discussion of the causes – and possible solutions – to these social trends. Cost: Free. Space is limited - pre-registration is required. RSVP: Online. Contact: Via e-mail.
