Housing Affordability Summit 

September 19, 2023 

Centering the interconnectedness of community, equity, and the built environment, the National Building Museum convenes diverse thought leaders for critical conversations on the current challenges and opportunities in the affordable housing crisis. The summit explores how collaborative action can reimagine and build a collective, thriving future. Recognizing that neither policy, design, nor advocacy alone can meaningfully address the underlying inequity of housing in America, the summit centers around the question: What do communities and neighborhoods lose when housing is unaffordable?
