September Coalition Power Breakfast

Breakfast Notice:

Please join the COAL membership at our next Coalition Power Breakfast on Saturday, September 7, 2013 from 8:30am – 11:00am (program begins @ 9:30am).This month our focus turns to housing. COAL is honored to host Maria Krysan, PhD., Associate Professor of Sociology – University of Illinois (Chicago) and faculty member of the Institute of Government & Public Affairs, as our guest speaker.

As we reflect on the anniversary of the historic March on Washington, many have asked the question, 
What has Changed?

More specifically, in the area of Housing, we have generally understood that Chicago has been one of the most segregated major cities in the nation, as reflected by its housing landscape – is this still the case?

50 years post The March and 45 years post the passage of the Fair Housing Act of 1968, is discrimination in metropolitan Chicago housing a common occurrence in our daily life?

At our September Breakfast, we will explore these questions and more. Professor Krysan will share the research she has performed in this critical area of concern for our Community. This should prove a very engaging and informative discussion.

Please forward this notice to your respective organization(s). Should yourorganization or you have questions, in advance, please forward questions to COAL Public Policy at [email protected].

We also look forward to you working with us, on actionable plans to address issues that align with COAL’s mission and drives towards improving the quality of opportunity, quality of preparedness and overall quality of outcomes (expressed as ‘quality of life’) for our community. If you wish to join one of our planning and action committees, please go to our website at and sign-up.
