Lunch & Learn with councilwomen Laura Arnold (WG) & Lisa Clancy (StLCo)
“Overcoming Obstacles to Create Community”—an ongoing project of the Racial Justice Committee
Tues., Jan. 14, 12 noon
Emmanuel Episcopal Church, 9 S. Bompart, Webster Groves, MO 63119
Two St. Louis County women are showing us new ways to look at affordable housing in St. Louis County, and they will share their insights and accomplishments with us. Laura Arnold, Webster Groves councilwoman, and Lisa Clancy, St. Louis County councilwoman representing the 5th District, will share their ideas (and frustrations).
Laura Arnold recently spearheaded legislation passed by the Webster Groves City Council that revamped the city’s Fair Housing Code, strengthened anti-discrimination laws for tenants who live in rental properties, and prevents landlords from discriminating against prospective tenants based on certain sources of income.
Lisa Clancy spearheaded legislation that will reorganize how the County spends money on affordable housing. Her legislation, co-sponsored by Councilwoman Rochelle Walton-Gray, 4th District, will create a trust fund to help increase the availability of safe and inexpensive housing in the County.
Members of Women’s Voices are encouraged to attend this meeting and learn what they might be able to do in their own communities to make affordable housing more available to all who need it.
The meeting, sponsored by the Women’s Voices Racial Justice committee is open to the public, free of charge. Attendees should bring their own lunch. Please let us know you’re coming here.
