Join the CHAPA Young Professionals Network to celebrate Black History Month with a film screening of "Race: The Power of an Illusion: The House We Live In"

A must see film for Community Development Professionals!

Join us for a viewing of The House We Live In, the 3rd part of the Race: the Power of an Illusion film series. This section of the series explores the roots of our current immigration and housing policies, and the legacy of inequities they created in the United States. As we celebrate Black History Month, we want to find ways to explore and learn our history so we may better prepare for today's challenges and strive for a more equitable future. The event will be hosted at MassHousing, located at 1 Beacon St., 4th Floor in Boston, MA
