Here is a sneak peek at what’s going to happen on state at the 2021 Housing Policy Summit

Tuesday, April 20 State of Hispanic Homeownership Report: The Future National Homeownership Rate Will Depend on Latinos
9:15 AM Pacific/ 12:15PM Eastern

For the first time ever, our state of Hispanic Homeownership Report release will include a conversation with the White House in reaction to our report. It doesn’t get better than that! Our CEO Gary Acosta will sit down with the Deputy Director of the National Economic Council Bharat Ramamurti to discuss the role Latinos play in forging the course of our economic future.

If we consider our policy conference as a tool to make history and move the needle on our advocacy, then perhaps no conversation will be more important than that one. The National Economic Council at the White House drives all economic policy for the Administration. The NEC handles policies ranging from tax policy, to COVID-Relief, to the Infrastructure Bill that will arguably be one of the most important pieces of legislation debated this year, particularly because it has the potential to address our top policy issue: housing inventory.

Also joining us for the State of Hispanic Homeownership Report release session is Adrian Saenz, Deputy Director of White House Office of Public Engagement. Adrian, a proud Texan and one of the highest ranking Latinos within the White House, will sit down with me to discuss our report and what that means for the broader Latino agenda. The Office of Public Engagement is responsible for ensuring that organizations like ours have a seat at the table in order to help inform the President’s agenda.

Wednesday, April 21 Day 2 Opening Keynote: HUD Secretary Marcia Fudge
9:05AM Pacific/ 12:05PM Eastern

We have a new HUD Secretary! All of you know how important HUD and FHA are to our mission and our industry. Let’s get to know our new HUD Secretary and hear her plans for expanding access to credit to Latinos and address our nation’s housing inventory crisis.

Thursday, April 22 Fireside Chat with Raul Ruiz, Chair of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus
9:20AM Pacific/12:20PM Eastern

The new chairman of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Raul Ruiz will sit down with us to discuss what his priorities are for his 2-year term as Chair of the CHC. Chairman Ruiz comes from the Coachella Valley, is a former Emergency Room Physician, and has three degrees from Harvard, a true “Orgullo Hispano.” I will sit down with the Chairman for a fireside chat to discuss where homeownership ranks in his list of priorities. You’re not going to want to miss this!

Thursday, April 22 Presidential Installation and Award Celebration, featuring a keynote address from Senator Alex Padilla
10:35AM Pacific/ 1:35PM Eastern

And finally, California, the most populous Latino state, until now never had a Latino U.S. Senator represent us. Can you believe that? The newly appointed Senator from California will keynote our presidential installation and award celebration and share with us about his story, how he came to be a U.S. Senator, and what he plans to do in office.

And guess what? There might be some more surprises that have yet to be announced. Don’t wait, register today.
