To commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Detroit riot/ rebellion in 1967, University of Detroit Mercy School of Law will host a housing symposium entitled HUD’s Past, Present and Future. The symposium will be held November 11-14, 2017.
The symposium will take place over a three day period. On Saturday, November 11, 2017, Detroit Mercy School of Law and the 10CORE® Law Society will host a series of practical housing workshops for the public (including emancipated minors, tenants, first-time homebuyers, the homeless, seniors, and veterans).
On Monday and Tuesday, November 13-14, 2017, Detroit Mercy Law will host an academic session with community organizers, clergy, economists, HUD/MSHDA officials, legal scholars, practitioners, public officials, and sociologists. This two-day session will culminate in a panel discussion commemorating the 1967 Detroit riot/ rebellion, and focus exclusively on Michigan and how HUD’s programs have impacted the region generally, and Detroit in particular.
