Habitat Charlotte and South State Bank welcome Dr. Marc Lamont Hill to the Queen City for the fourth annual Building Futures: a Symposium on Affordable Housing. As Charlotte continues to grow with blinding speed, the state and availability of affordable housing remains a major topic of conversation.

Join us as Dr. Hill helps us navigate this important topic in our community.
Building Futures is free and open to the public. Because of limited space, we simply ask that you reserve your seat by registering below.
