Violence Against Women Act Webinar
"VAWA and Housing: Past, Present, & Future"
This webinar will follow the evolution of the Violence Against Women Act's housing protections for domestic violence survivors.
Speakers will address the social and legislative history behind the introduction of these protections, their efficacy in combating discrimination against survivors, and how their strengths and limitations have shaped goals for the Act's pending reauthorization. Participants will gain an understanding of the existing terms of the Act and the gap between statutory language and implementation, as well as an appreciation for the potential for VAWA reauthorization to serve as a vehicle for enhanced enforcement.
A window into the advocacy efforts of a national coalition of legal professionals, the event will feature speakers from a range of organizational backgrounds:
- Rachel Natelson of the National Law Center on Homelessness & Poverty,
- Sandra Park of the American Civil Liberties Union,
- Meliah Schultzman of the National Housing Law Project, and
- Kate Walz of the Sargent Shriver National Center on Poverty Law.
