The Do Good Accelerator is proud to host a series of Lunch with Leaders toprovide UMD students and members of the local community a chance tomeet and engage in dialogue with local nonprofit leaders. Join us on the second Wednesday of the (almost every) month for lunch to learn from an expert about housing discrimination.

On Wednesday, November 14, come hear Susie McClannahan from the Equal Rights Center speak about housing discrimination and how the Equal Rights Center (ERC) identifies and responds to housing discrimination. The Equal Rights Center is a civil rights organization based in Washington, DC that seeks to identify and eliminate unfair and unlawful discrimination in housing, public accommodations, and employment locally and nationwide. Susie’s presentation will provide an overview of the Fair Housing Act, how housing discrimination has transformed over the last 50 years, and the ERC’s role in preventing discrimination.

By sitting down and speaking with leaders from local nonprofits, who arealready tackling today's biggest challenges, you can deepen yourunderstanding about social issues, learn about why these issues exist,what current solutions are being implemented, how current gaps can befilled and ask questions that will enable you to think of new and innovativeapproaches to solve these issues. Lunch will be provided.
