As Austin’s population and development continue to boom, the city’s housing options are becoming less and less affordable for people with low income, working-class residents, middle-class families, students, and many others. At this critical time, the LBJ Future Forum is convening a diverse group of leaders and community members to discuss some of the best ideas, plans, and ongoing efforts to ensure equitable housing options for all Austinites.

Registration: 6-6:30 p.m.
Discussion: 6:30-7:30 p.m.

A reception will follow the panel, and attendees are encouraged to continue the conversation over drinks and light bites.
