This year's Vermont Statewide Housing Conference on November 16, 2022 will feature keynote speaker Sara Bronin, a Mexican-American architect, attorney, professor, and policymaker whose interdisciplinary work focuses on how law and policy can foster more equitable, sustainable, well-designed, and connected places. Recently nominated by President Biden to chair the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation, Bronin's recent projects, which span topics from renewable energy to federalism, include the article Zoning by a Thousand Cuts along with the National Zoning Atlas and earlier DesegregateCT initiative.

At the November conference, Bronin will share evidence from her work and describe ways zoning data can better inform advocacy.  She will also explain how the National Zoning Atlas will help us understand zoning's relationship to housing affordability and diversity and offers new hope for the future.

Registration for the conference at the special early bird rate is available through October 7. Visit the conference website for a full list of workshops and agenda items.
