Please help support PRRAC’s fall fundraising campaign!November, 2015
Dear friend of PRRAC,
What a year it has been! A resounding affirmation of the Fair Housing Act by the Supreme Court – followed by the release of the final Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing Rule at HUD – and an overflow crowd of almost 250 activists, practitioners, and government officials at our sixth national housing mobility conference in Chicago in July, energized by new research on the long term benefits of housing desegregation for young children.
Then in September, PRRAC and the National Coalition on School Diversity brought together 300-plus activists, educators, and students at Howard Law School for “21st Century School Integration: Building the Movement for Diversity, Inclusion, and Equity,” a conference designed to both expand the national movement for school integration and to celebrate some of the policy and organizing advances we have made in the past two years.
Many of the advances we have seen in the past year have affirmed the power and discretion of the federal executive branch to promote civil rights through programmatic reform, which is part of our basic theory of change. But as we have continued to work every week in the trenches of housing and education policy, we also know how much is still left undone – especially at HUD, at the Treasury Department, and at the Department of Education!
So as we enter the final year of the Obama administration, we really do need your support more than ever. Please consider a generous tax deductible contribution to PRRAC this year.*
