How could the next housing plan ensure the stability and success of its immigrant communities?

    CHPC hosted an online event to explore this question and present the research findings and recommendations from its Housing Plan for a City of Immigrants. Guest speakers discussed the work by their own organizations to meet the needs of immigrant New Yorkers and new ways that housing policy can be leveraged to support immigrant communities moving forward.

    In conversation: 

    • Michelle de la Uz, Executive Director, Fifth Avenue Committee
    • Anu Joshi, Vice President of Policy, New York Immigration Coalition
    • Thomas Yu, Co-Executive Director, Asian Americans for Equality
    • Sheena Kang, Senior Policy Analyst, CHPC
    • Jessica Katz, Executive Director, CHPC

    Housing Plan for a City of Immigrants is part of A New Lens for NYC’s Housing Plan, CHPC’s research and education initiative to explore how New York City’s next housing plan could have a broader impact beyond counting units. The next housing plan provides an opportunity for communities and policymakers to widen the discussion, articulate new metrics, and develop a shared vision of housing policy for the city.
