We Are All Criminals: The Impact on Housing
5:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Mitchell Hamline School of Law

“Increasingly, lawmakers are enacting policies that restrict persons with records (particularly drug convictions) from access to public housing. Likewise, many private landlords conduct background checks on potential renters, either excluding anyone with a record or charging higher rent or triple security deposit to live there. Such collateral consequences create substantial barriers to economic, educational, and social progress: without a safe and affordable home, men, women, and families are left homeless, living in shelters, or in crowded and unsafe situations where the focus is often on survival, not advancement.” –WAAC website

Please join the MSBA Public Utilities Law Section and Mitchell Hamline School of Law as our speakers address the unofficial buzz-phrase of 2018 - "Grid Resilience." Recent extreme weather events, continuing examination of our distribution and transmission infrastructure, and evaluation of various solutions on the customers’ side of the meter, have launched resilience of the electric grid into the forefront of the minds of industry experts and legal practitioners. Come to hear experts discuss what have been dubbed as the four pillars of improving our nation’s grid resilience - smartening the grid, hardening the grid, distributing generation, and building resilience on demand.    

Keynote Speaker:
