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.
