On Thursday, November 13, 2008, the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago, in co-sponsorship with the Iowa and Davenport Civil Rights Commissions, will sponsor a half-day symposium entitled, "Fair Lending/Fair Housing in the Foreclosure Crisis."
This symposium is a continuation of a series of conferences and other meetings around the 7th Federal Reserve District (Illinois, Iowa, Michigan, Indiana, and Wisconsin) to bring current information and informed discussions regarding the current mortgage/foreclosure crisis and the rights and resources available to local communities to deal with housing issues, including foreclosure, rentals, legal enforcement of fair lending and fair housing rights, and other financial and social ramifications of the current situation.
Featured speakers are Michael Seng, Professor at John Marshall Law School in Chicago, and well known speaker and author on fair lending issues. Also featured is Stella Adams, founder and CEO of S. J. Adams Consulting of Durham, North Carolina, which is a full service civil rights research and consulting firm that provides a broad range of services to non-profit community-based organizations, government and industry. Ms. Adams' work concentrates on fair housing, mortgage fraud investigations, training, and other topics concerning fair lending and fair housing.
