Organization: National Low Income Housing Coalition
Where: Washington DC
Date: February 27-28, 2006

Plenary: Examining Post-Hurricane Affordable Housing Policies
The morning?s plenary will focus on post-hurricane affordable housing policies. The plenary will offer a status report on how well evacuees have been housed by FEMA and HUD programs in the short-term and what the federal role will be in determining long-range affordable housing plans. Of all that remains to be done, how can national housing policies effectively help evacuees and local program administrators repair the damage?

Keynote Address and Luncheon
National Public Radio Senior Correspondent Juan Williams will deliver a luncheon speech on the role affordable housing has in the civil rights movement. In addition to working at NPR, Mr. Williams authored the acclaimed biography, Thurgood Marshall: American Revolutionary and the nonfiction bestseller, Eyes on the Prize: America?s Civil Rights Years, 1954 ? 1965. Mr. Williams will share his views on housing, which he began to form early growing up in public housing. Mr. Williams is a contributing political analyst for the Fox News Channel and had a 21-year career at The Washington Post as an editorial writer, op-ed columnist and White House reporter.
