Charlotte is facing an affordable housing crisis. Ensuring all Charlotteans have a decent place to live requires creative collaboration from policymakers, organizations, and community members. Aiming to bring these bright minds together, Habitat Charlotte presents its third annual Building Futures Symposium, a public conversation on affordable housing in our city.

Join Habitat Charlotte for the third-annual Building Futures: A Symposium on Affordable Housing. This year’s event features Dr. Tererai Trent – an internationally-renowned scholar, humanitarian, motivational speaker, educator & author. Dr. Trent recently won the 2018 NAACP Award for Outstanding Literary Work (Instructional) for her latest book, The Awakened Woman.

Dr. Trent’s compelling story encourages people to fight for their own dreams, as well as the dreams of others. She truly exemplifies the goal of Building Futures: to foster learning and inspiration towards understanding the role of affordable housing in advancing a just society.

This event is free and open to the public; we only ask that you secure your spot by registering in advance.
