Key to Change: Unlocking Housing Opportunities for Returning Citizens

May 24 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

McCosh Hall
Room 28

Moderator: Jeff Abramowitz, CEO, The Petey Greene Program. Panelists: Yusuf Dahl *17, CEO, The Century Promise; Carl Gershenson, director, The Eviction Lab, Princeton; Nicholas Kikis, vice president, legislative and regulatory affairs, New Jersey Apartment Association; Madeleine Marr ’21, legislative assistant, Office of Senator John Fetterman

Housing denials, not because of present circumstances but because of a past mistake —sometimes decades ago—is the harsh reality for countless justice-impacted individuals seeking housing today. It’s an unfortunate truth that those who have paid their debt to society often find themselves locked out, with homelessness rates among them nearly ten times higher than that of the general population. Please join us for a thought-provoking discussion as our panel of experts uses the short film “Backgrounded” to launch a discussion on how past incarceration remains a barrier to housing and opportunity long after reentry into society and provides a roadmap on how landlords, advocates, and policymakers can work together on a path forward.
