Please join us as Dr. Gabriel Amaro presents his lecture, entitled, “Getting Housed: De Facto Segregation, Rapid Population Growth, and Housing Stability in Austin.” Who gets to live in Austin? Since 2000, the City of Austin population has increased by almost 270,000 people, with 50% of that growth occurring since just 2010. This growth, along with historical patterns of de facto segregation based on race and ethnicity, has serious consequences for Austin's most vulnerable populations and for the stability of the city as a whole. This lecture, the first talk of the Latino Research Initiative Lecture Series, will discuss those consequences, as well as how different area institutions are working together with the City of Austin to address housing affordability.

Dr. Amaro is a Research Associate at the Latino Research Initiative at The University of Texas at Austin. He received his Ph.D. in Sociology with a Demography specialization from Texas A&M University-College Station.
