The City of San José’s presentation will highlight the City’s history of segregation, including practices and policies that have resulted in — and continue to perpetuate — a pattern of segregation by race and socioeconomic status. We’ll discuss examples of government actions that have impacted communities of color, such as land use and transportation decisions that created the Eastside, and the destruction and replacement of Asian neighborhoods in the Downtown. After looking at the City’s role in creating segregation, we’ll discuss its responsibility to address it, including Fair Housing laws that require cities to address racial segregation. We’ll also cover the City’s current Housing Element Update — a once-in-a-decade process that invites all community members to get involved (learn more at www.sanjoseca.gov/HousingElementUpdate). A moderated discussion will follow the presentation.
