Hate, Housing, and the Landscape of our City

  • People's Food Coop: Community Room 3029 Southeast 21st Avenue Portland, OR, 97202 United States (map)

Participants will understand and acknowledge our shared history; embrace our common values as neighbors and gain knowledge about our rights and responsibilities in housing. From racial exclusion laws in Oregon’s constitution and racially exclusionary housing practices such as “redlining” and restrictive deed covenants, to continuing involuntary economic displacement from neighborhoods, we must learn and acknowledge the history of racial discrimination, segregation and displacement to understand the different experiences of and disparate outcomes for our most vulnerable community members. Our history consciously intended to divide us by race and class. We must find our way forward to more open and inclusive communities in a way that unites us. Offered by the Fair Housing Council of Oregon. Tuesday, November 19th at 6 PM @ People’s Food Co-op 3029 SE 21st Ave Portland, OR 97202. RSVP Required
