Martin Luther King said, "We must now learn to live together as brothers, or we will perish together as fools."

Since the time of the Civil Rights movement in the 1960's, there have been concerns in Chicago's suburbs for fair and affordable housing.  Dr. King even spoke at the Winnetka Village Green in 1965 to thousands of people.

Founded In 1972 through an inter-religious group of clergy leaders, the Interfaith Housing Center has worked tirelessly for more inclusive communities, and more housing for those of moderate and low incomes.

Gail Schechter, Executive Director of Interfaith Housing Center has been a leader in fair and affordable housing advocacy, discrimination investigation, tenant and community organizing, and public policy research and development.  

So how far have we come?  What more needs to be done? How can we help bring the vision of affordable housing to thousands of people across the Chicagoland community?

Join us for this insightful interview with the award-winning social justice advocate... the "Champion of the Public Interest" leader, Gail Schechter.  

Let us not forget Dr. King's words... "We must now learn to live together."  How long do we have to wait?
