ONE Neighborhood Builders is hosting a virtual event and panel discussion to consider what  strategies can make code enforcement more equitable and effective at improving housing quality and stability?

Cities and towns in Rhode Island and across the country design and enforce building code, which is intended to ensure homes maintain a minimum of health and safety standards, especially for the people living there. How this code is developed and implemented can have significant implications for housing quality and resident stability.

Tune in to hear from practitioners advancing code enforcement reforms in Rhode Island and in other states in the country.

Panelists include;

  • Libby Benton, Senior Counsel, Center for Community Progress
  • Lucy Berman, Associate Director of Advocacy & Organizing, ONE Central Providence (ONE|NB)
  • Cherie Cruz, RI State Representative (Pawtucket) and Tenant Organizer, Reclaim RI
  • DeeAnn Guo, Community Organizer, Childhood Lead Action Project
  • James Moore III, Director, Department of Inspections and Standards, City of Providence
  • Carrie Zaslow, Executive Director, Providence Revolving Fund
