Today at 10 a.m. PT (1 p.m. ET), Zillow and the National Urban League will host Department of Housing and Urban Development Secretary Shaun Donovan at their headquarters in Seattle for a town-hall meeting, where Secretary Donovan will take questions from home buyers, homeowners and mortgage applicants.
The event is entitled "Building Equality in Housing" and Secretary Donovan will discuss the current state of minority access to housing and shed light around what HUD and the Obama administration are doing to address housing equality. As Zillow did with the roundtable discussion with President Barack Obama back in August, this event will be live-streamed. Come back to this article to watch the event live at 10 a.m. PT (1 p.m. ET).

In parallel with the event, Zillow and the National Urban League researched trends on minority access to housing, outlining the different experiences between races when seeking a mortgage, buying a home and during ownership, and reported their findings last week.
