Public Housing & Activism Series: Jordan Downs

Jan 26 @ 12:00 pm-1:30 pm

We will turn our attention back to Los Angeles as a follow up from the screening of the “70 Acres in Chicago” and the discussion of the destruction of the Cabrini Green development. On Thursday, January 26, 2017, the Lewis Center along with our partners at the Ziman Center for Real Estate and the Institute of Inequality and Democracy will host a discussion centering around Jordan Downs, the Los Angeles public housing development slated for transformation into an “urban village.” The event will situate Jordan Downs in the cultural history and geography of Watts and South Los Angeles, identify current residents’ concerns and highlight how residents and the Housing Authority of the County of Los Angeles are working to shape redevelopment.


We will be joined by Doug Guthrie, President & CEO of the Housing Authority of the City of Los Angeles as well as Thelmy Perez, Coordinator of the Los Angeles Human Right to Housing Collective.
