HUD To Hold 6 Forums To Aid Planning for Fair Housing

The Department of Housing and Urban Development is holding Symposia in six cities to help state, local and private officials to plan for affirmatively furthering fair housing. The brochure says the forums will help "America's neighborhoods to overcome spatial separation and segregation." This builds on the theme that racism is at the core of America's urban problems as stated by Secretary Cisneros in a New York Times interview in July, 1993.

Each forum will be held at the dates and locations below, (based on the brochure received 8-9-94 by the Advocate): Day 1, 10:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.; Day 2, 8:30 a.m - 4:30 p.m.; Day 3, 8:30 a-m. - 12:00 noon.
