Reframing Fair Housing, Reclaiming Neighborhood History
June 21, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Join us for the first gathering of the “Racism, Rent and Real Estate: Fair Housing Reframed” event series to learn more about the history and impetus of fair housing laws and share your knowledge about the history of your family and neighborhood.
This event will feature the work of the Mapping Prejudice project team, which includes Ryan Mattke, head of the University of Minnesota’s Borchert Map Library.
About the Event
The way our neighborhoods look and feel today are a product of our shared history; one shaped by racist policies that barred households of color from homeownership and wealth accumulation for many years. In spite of these intentional barriers, like redlining and racial covenants, communities of color created and continue to build vibrant neighborhoods, rich with gathering places and family legacies that are often lost to the general public — and policy makers who make decisions that impact our lives everyday.
When: June 21, 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.
Where: Sabathani Community Center
