New York Law School’s CityLaw Breakfast Series features Shola Olatoye, Chair & CEO of the New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA), as its March speaker. She will discuss “Next Generation NYCHA.” Appointed by Mayor de Blasio in 2014, she leads the effort to improve residents’ quality of life at the largest public housing authority in the nation, and to help fulfill the Mayor’s plan to create or preserve 200,000 affordable housing units over the next 10 years.
Anthony Crowell, Dean and President of New York Law School and former counselor to Mayor Bloomberg and Professor Ross Sandler, founding director of the Center for New York City Law at New York Law School, will give opening remarks.
CityLaw breakfasts are held eight times a year at New York Law School and feature prominent speakers discussing current government and political issues. They are free and open to the public. The events are often broadcast by NYC Media cable television throughout the five boroughs and webcast live at www.citylandnyc.org. Founding sponsors of the breakfasts include Consolidated Edison, Verizon, and Greenberg Traurig. Individual Breakfasts often have special sponsors.
