Pathways to opportunity: Housing, transportation, and social mobility

Pathways to opportunity: Housing, transportation, and social mobility

Washington, D.C. – February 18, 2016 – (RealEstateRama) — Two important factors connecting communities to employment, education, and vital services are affordable housing and transportation. While improving proximity and access to jobs alone certainly won’t solve our social mobility challenges, it can ameliorate problems like segregation, concentrated poverty, and low-density sprawl that pose real barriers to economic progress for low-income families.

During this event, hosted by the Metropolitan Policy Program at Brookings, Vice President and Director of the Metropolitan Policy Program Amy Liu will moderate a conversation between U.S. Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julián Castro and U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx. The conversation will be followed by a response panel of experts from metropolitan areas across the country who will discuss local level impacts.

Register for the webcast or to attend in person at the Brookings Institution in Washington, DC.
