Fair Housing Conference 2024

FHCCI’s 12th Annual Fair Housing Conference (Virtual)

Tuesday, April 9, 2024

9:00 AM – 4:45 PM (ET)


DATE/TIME: The FHCCI’s 12th Annual Fair Housing Conference will be held on Wednesday, April 9, 2024 from 9:00 AM to 4:45 PM (ET). This year’s conference theme is Fair Housing: Protecting Us ALL. The conference will begin promptly at 9:00 AM and is a VIRTUAL event. Paid and/or confirmed registrants will receive a link to the conference platform in the week prior to the conference. 

KEYNOTE SPEAKER: Cashauna Hill is the Executive Director of The Redress Movement. The Redress Movement initially emerged in response to Richard Rothstein’s book, The Color of Law, which documents the intentional laws, covenants, and processes that created housing segregation along with other seminal works published in recent years. Awareness of these truths, coupled with the unprecedented participation of 20 million Americans of all races and ethnicities in the spring and summer of 2020, in Black Lives Matter demonstrations, convinces us that a new movement to redress racial segregation is possible, if only we take the steps needed to help organize it.

Cashauna formerly served as Executive Director of one of the most active fair housing advocacy groups in the country, the Louisiana Fair Housing Action Center (formerly known as the Greater New Orleans Fair Housing Action Center). At LaFHAC, she led a team working holistically to end discriminatory housing policies and practices through litigation, policy advocacy, community-based educational offerings, and other direct services to community members. As an advocate, leader, and litigator with personal connections to the impacts of residential segregation and exclusionary housing policy, her work as Executive Director included leading the community engagement process for the City of New Orleans’ 2016 Assessment of Fair Housing plan – the first in the nation submitted under a 2015 rule requiring state and local governments to identify and address barriers to fair housing choice.

Additionally, her background includes successful resolution of fair housing and lending claims through administrative and court processes. Cashauna has written extensively about housing segregation and civil rights and has testified before the United States Congress as a fair housing expert. Most importantly, for the Redress Movement, Cashauna brings her commitment to racial justice and a deep understanding of racial segregation and fair housing innovation. She is a graduate of Spelman College and Tulane University’s Law School.
