Capitol Weekly presents
A Conference on Housing Policy
Wednesday, May 26, 2021
Panel 1, The Pandemic Effect
As people hunkered down, working from their homes, inventory tightened; home prices made an unexpected jump, driving prices even further out of range for many Californians. At the same time, many working people lost wages, creating a backlog of unpaid rents and mortgages; COVID-era eviction moratoriums protect them for now, but what happens when those protections are lifted? And, what of the low income Californians and communities of color who bore the brunt of the pandemic’s impact?
Moderated by Liam Dillon, Los Angeles Times
Panelists: Helen Leung, LA-Más; Natalie Holmes, California Policy Lab; Shanti Singh, Tenants Together; Constance Griggs-Lazzeroni, California Association of Mortgage Professionals.
