SCAPH Presents Righting Past Wrongs: Redlining’s Causal Role in Shaping Southern CA Communities and the Movement for Land Reparations


In recent times, localities throughout the country have been grappling with ways to right the wrongs of the past. The creation of a California State Reparations Task Force and local efforts to return land to displaced communities reflect the efforts being made. Join us on February 23rd as we take a deeper look into what actions can be taken at the state and local level, and how we as housers can play a role.

We will first have a presentation by Dr. Anthony Orlando, whose new book, “Keeping Races in Their Places: The Dividing Lines That Shaped the American City” explores the lasting impacts of redlining and the potential current day solutions.  We will then hear from a fantastic panel on what land reparations mean for our communities, followed by a Q+A from the audience.
