The world has been walloped with more than its fair share of natural disasters in recent years, many made worse due to climate change. And when you watch on TV – the accounts of the devastation, the loss of life – one very important point is often neglected, and that is a substandard housing these people were living in– housing which frequently has collapsed upon them and their loved ones. This is an urgent issue, a global epidemic that merits far more attention. And we’re going to give it some tonight with one of the preeminent leaders in the field. She is Dr. Elizabeth Hausler, the Founder and CEO of Build Change.

It was just about 50 years ago– April 11, 1968 to be exact– that Congress passed one of the crowning achievements of the civil rights era, The Fair Housing Act, just seven days after the assassination of Martin Luther King. But by nearly every metric, America today remains a deeply segregated society, with a growing shortage of affordable homes for low-income people. Here to discuss all that with us is Diane Yentel, the President and CEO of the National Low-Income Housing Coalition. Good evening, Diane and welcome to The Business of Giving.
