This multi-part free webinar series explores historical patterns of racism in the context of redlining by exploring the intersections of the Black Lives Matters movement and community development.
A recent study by the National Community Reinvestment Coalition indicates that the overwhelming majority of neighborhoods marked “hazardous” in red ink on maps drawn by the federal Home Owners’ Loan Corp. from 1935 to 1939 are much more likely than other areas today to consist of lower-income, minority residents. This panel of expert legal professionals will address the long term impacts of redlining on community development, housing, education, and economic justice.
