Learn about pension investments in affordable housing on Oct. 3

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

SEATTLE — Working families across Washington are experiencing a housing crisis. More than 240,000 new affordable homes are needed in King County alone in the next 20 years to help make housing affordable again. Pension funds, managing billions of dollars in worker retirement savings, need safe investment vehicles as part of diversified portfolios. In other cities and states, pension plans invest in affordable housing to simultaneously guarantee worker pensions and address housing needs.

You’re invited to hear a presentation by the AFL-CIO Housing Investment Trust to learn how it works. It will be Thursday, Oct. 3 from 2 to 4 p.m. in Hall 8 if the Seattle Labor Temple, 2800 1st Ave. This event is hosted by MLK Labor and the Washington State Labor Council, AFL-CIO. (Download the event flier.)

Light refreshments will be served. For more information and to RSVP, please email the WSLC’s Willa Kamakahi or call 206-281-8901.
