Event Description

Even though it has been more than 50 years since the passage of the landmark federal Fair Housing Act that abolished redlining, recent reports from the Fair Housing Center of Central Indiana indicate significant levels of discrimination against African Americans. Speakers will help educate on the history of discriminatory practices as they relate to purchasing, renting and buying homes in our community, how historically city planning often displaced Black neighbors, the laws created over the years to protect people of color, and what effort still remains to create equal opportunities for all homeowners.
