If you're upset about Lancaster County's affordable housing crisis, get out there and help change the policies and attitudes that create and perpetuate it, speakers at Friday's "Future of Affordable Housing" forum recommended.

"Our policy needs to be informed by our morals and our ethics and our values," said Jennifer Frank, assistance professor at Millersville University's School of Social Work.

"Get in the conversation," she said.

Friday's forum was a sequel to one held the previous Friday, July 9, titled "Affordable Housing 101." Both took place at the Ware Center, as part of "Home is Here," a project of the Lancaster Hub of Global Shapers, a network of young people engaged in addressing local and global challenges.
