The Impact of Segregation and Reparative Strategies
Part II will explore the impact of segregation and innovative strategies being used around the country to counteract it. We will consider the role of towns, regions, and the state in "unwinding" segregation, with a particular focus on the role the creation of mixed-income communities can play in fostering a more equitable and sustainable Hartford region. Our panelists will include Philip Tegeler of the Poverty and Race Research Action Council, Professor Anika Singh Lemar of Yale Law School, OCA’s Erin Boggs, and Jennifer Rangel of the Inclusive Communities Project.
