Arlington is experiencing a shortage of affordable housing. One idea worth examining is to adjust our zoning laws to allow greater variety of housing types in single family areas (e.g. duplexes or fourplexes) to allow for the development of multi-family properties along transportation corridors. Join us to hear from our speakers about challenges and possible solutions:


Michelle McDonough Winters, Executive Director of the Alliance for Housing Solutions

Peter Rousselot, former member of the Central Committee of the Democratic Party of Virginia and former Chair of the Arlington County Democratic Committee

Jeannette Chapman, Deputy Director, The Stephen S. Fuller Institute at the Schar School, GMU

Countering Hate: Lessons from Intolerance in Arlington's History

Hard as it may be to believe, the White Nationalist movement post-WWII has roots in Arlington. Through the 1980s, Arlington was the home to the American Nazi Party headquarters. Join us to explore this history, understand the resurgence of White Nationalism in the United States, and discuss implications for today. We are pleased to host speakers Charlie Clark and Amaka Okechukwu.
