Mark Joseph to Present at National Press Club May 23

The Center for the Study of Social Policy (CSSP) and The Annie E. Casey Foundation are hosting a discussion and book signing in honor of Associate Professor Mark Joseph, who is a CSSP Senior Fellow, and his co-author, University of Chicago Professor Robert Chaskin, at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., on Monday, May 23, at 5:00 p.m. REGISTER HERE

Their recently published book, Integrating the Inner City: The Promise and Perils of Mixed Income Housing Transformation, explores what it takes to design, finance and build a mixed-income development with the aim of creating a thriving community. This new work, based on years of research on the transformation of public housing in Chicago, illuminates the successes and challenges of this approach as a solution to urban poverty.

The panel discussion with the authors will be hosted by Frank Farrow, CSSP Director, with Katherine O’Regan, HUD Assistant Secretary for Policy Development and Research, and Ryan Chao, Annie E. Casey Foundation Vice President for Civic Sites and Community Change.

The discussion will be followed by a reception for the authors and book signing. The event is free and open to all.
