The House: A Smart Creature Enabling Community Inclusion, Visibility, and Integration

Please join Gary C. Norman, Esq. L.L.M. State Civil Rights Commissioner and Vice Chair of the Commission as well as other public policy leaders in a non-partisan town hall dialogue on October 27, 2016, at the University of Baltimore School Of Law’s Center on Medicine and Law from 11 A.M. to 2 P.M.

The Fair Housing Amendments Act; the Americans with Disabilities Act; and, other related legal protections provide broad civil rights to the ever-increasing number of Americans who have a disability as well as those Americans who are perceived as having a disability. Because of these panoply, progress has culturally and legally occurred in removing barriers to full participation of people with disabilities in society, but many hurdles still remain, including, the power of leveraging the intersection of housing and innovative housing policy; health technology; and technological innovation for more visibility and inclusion.

Join us at the law school for an exciting series of presentations reflecting on ways housing, health technology, and technical innovation may be leveraged for fulfilling the promise of community inclusion and integration. This town hall dialogue will occur in a Conversations for Change format with a report to be generated from audience input.
