NCJWSTL Lunch & Learn: Housing Inequality in St. Louis
Join NCJWSTL for our May Lunch & Learn as we watch and discuss “Segregated by Design,” a powerful and engaging video that details how our federal, state, and local governments segregated metropolitan areas, including St. Louis, by imposing unconstitutional residential policies.
St. Louis is divided along many lines and race plays a role in every one of those divisions. It determines our future because if you make a transparent map of racial segregation and lay it over other maps – political power, cultural influence, health, wealth, education, and employment – the pattern repeats itself. Why was segregation more dramatic here in St. Louis than it was in other Midwestern cities? Why hasn’t it lifted as quickly?
Lisa Mandel, a realtor working to create affordable housing opportunities in St. Louis, a member of the Urban Land Institute, a Metro Housing Task Force member, and a part of the St. Patrick’s Center Landlord Advisory Group, will also present on the impact of these policies in St. Louis.
